      Expert Says Tsunami Shows Vulnerability To Rising Sea Levels

      A professor at the University of California says the tsunami that
      struck Asia and Africa highlights how many people live along the
      world's coastlines. What's more, she says, it highlights the need to
      take action on global warming, which could affect sea levels.

      Many reports have been issued stating Global Warming is a reality,
      but often a government official says more study is needed. She
      says, "Many people have gotten the impression that we really do need
      more study. That is really is a kind of contested scientific issue
      and that's just not true. The science of this problem is not at
      issue."

      Why question the many reports? "Because you don't want to do anything
      about it. That's the only reason that makes any sense."
