The interactive map shows the potential sea levels if the planet rises in temperature by both 2°celcius and 4°celcius.

The issue of global warming is the point of discussion in workplaces and schools all over the world, and leading governments are being pressurised to act before it is too late.

Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg has become a global spokesperson for the future generations in insisting that action be taken by the leading countries in the world to stop the trend of global warming before the damage is irreversible.

Away from Ireland, the rising sea levels will impact all corners of the world.

Much of the east coast of the USA would become submerged, including nearly half of the state of Florida.
