During the last century, the oceans rose about 5-9 inches, according to the EPA, and sea levels could increase by up to 5 feet by 2100, threatening 180 U.S. coastal cities. But in some parts of the world, entire countries are at risk of vanishing beneath the seas. From Alaskan coastal communities to tiny Pacific island nations like Tuvalu (pictured left), political leaders and concerned citizens are working together to save their homes, their sovereignty and their identities from disappearing beneath the waves.How nations are coping with rising seas
