7. Can the causes of sea level rise be influenced by human behaviour?

The driving force behind recent sea level rise is global warming and climate change. As research shows, the main cause of global warming is the increased concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere which is caused by human activities. So we can say that the causes of sea level rise are mainly influenced by human activities.

However this also means that we can eliminate these causes by taking action. To minimize the impacts of climate change, we need to start changing our habits as soon as possible to decrease the amount of greenhouse gas emissions.
