Since humans started using the Earth's resources in more incredible and wonderful ways we've seen a rise in global temperatures and changes to weather patterns that could have drastic consequences for future generations - but how much of this is due to the lives we lead today is still heavily debated.

Rising sea levels is one of the most worrying consequences of global warming, threatening over 100 million people living in vulnerable coastal areas. But measuring the rate of the rise is fraught with difficulty.
