Pumping water out of aquifers at the rate we do exacerbates the effects of climate change

Our climate is changing, making polar ice, glaciers and icebergs melt, causing the sea level to rise — even threatening our famous historical and cultural treasures. That pretty much seems to be the story, reported again and again. But, worrisomely, there’s even more to be concerned about. We’re making the sea level rise even more than it would otherwise, by pumping too much groundwater. Yup, seems like we can’t do anything right.
