Sea level is rising much faster in the east coast of the US than elsewhere. But, then, it's all a mystery, folks. Go back to sleep. (sarcasm)
It's still something of a mystery why the U.S. East Coast is bearing the brunt of sea level rise. Maybe, the researchers say, fresh water from Greenland's melting ice is disrupting North Atlantic currents, slowing the Gulf Stream and causing East Coast sea levels to rise.
It's also unclear to what extent humans may be to blame.
