National Geographic Russia magazine celebrates its 10th anniversary this month. The main story on the world’s rising oceans is reflected by the cover image of a partially submerged Statue of Liberty. If all of the ice on Earth were to melt within the next 1,000 years — a possibility that cannot be ruled out — the global sea level would rise by 65 feet and the lower part of the Stature of Liberty would be under water. The article is embellished with interactive illustrations and provides detailed information on what awaits humanity if the oceans were to rise.
