Burning fossil fuels and animal agriculture are the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions. Greenhouse gasses trap heat in the Earth's atmosphere, which causes average temperatures to rise.
Melting glaciers are not the only cause of rising sea levels. As the temperature rises, the water gets warmer. When water gets warmer, every water molecule expands by a small amount.
Hurricanes and tropical storms form over warm ocean waters. With rising temperatues, these storms will only grow stronger and occur more often.
