Ali Ibrahim, Eds. Cambridge University Press, pp. 27-60.

People and communities around the globe are reporting weather events and patterns that seem unfamiliar. Such changes will continue to unfold over the coming decades and, depending on which choices people make, possibly for centuries. But the various changes will not occur at the same rates in all cities of the world, nor will they all occur gradually or at consistent rates of change.

Climate scientists have concluded that, whereas some of these changes will take place over many decades, even centuries, there is also a risk of crossing thresholds in the climate system that cause some rapid, irreversible changes to occur. One example would be melting of the Greenland and West Antarctic ice sheets, which would lead to very high and potentially rapid rates of sea level rise in many cities.
