The only known habitable planet might be on the verge of a devastating collapse. According to a new study, Earth might be falling into a series of tipping points that will greatly impact the planet's habitability.
A global warming of severe levels remains a distinct possibility in the decades and centuries ahead, according to scientists, warning that a "hothouse Earth" threatens the very "habitability of the planet for human beings."
In this so-called hothouse Earth, sea levels will rise between 33 to 200 feet — 10 to 60 meters — higher than current levels.
