Long-term measurements of tide gauges and the latest satellite figures reveal an average of how much sea levels have risen per year &mdash; <a href="https://royalsociety.org/topics-policy/projects/climate-change-evidence-causes/question-14/">3.2 millimeters annually</a>. Over the last 100 years, sea levels have risen eight inches. Extrapolating from <a href="http://geology.com/sea-level-rise/">this interactive map</a>, it&rsquo;s clear to see which areas we&rsquo;ll lose first in the event of flooding. While it remains a humbling thought that we each bear on behalf of humanity, how does it affect us in the short-term?</p> <p>One effect of rising sea levels seems to be slower home sales along the coasts. According to <a href="http://www.attomdata.com/">ATTOM Data</a>, coastal regions in the U.S. have seen a 25 percent reduction in home sales over the last half-decade. Increasing occurrence of hurricanes and associated storm surge risk have seen <a href="https://www.benzinga.com/investing/real-estate-investment/">real estate markets</a> slump in areas such as the Carolinas, and are now affecting counties in South Florida.
