The aim of this project is to show the increasingly devastating affect global warming is having on the environment. The topic is about “Rising Sea Levels”
Over the last hundred years, sea levels have risen ten times faster when compared to the year 2000 average. But in the next hundred years, the rate of sea level rise could increase more dramatically. One of the main reasons for sea level rise is the melting of Greenland’s ice sheet and this unexpected melting ice is causing islands to be swallowed by the sea.
The Book is four pages, which represent the gradual warming of the earth over the flow of time. Each subsequent page gets smaller than the page before it. As you turn the pages, this gradual decrease in the size of the pages as well as the decrease of the orifice in each of the 3 pages signifies the sea level rising around the island, so that it seems the Maldives Island is sinking.
