Sea level rising is like the eye of the hurricane
It’s quiet about sea level rising. Like the eye of the hurricane, around which the storm is raging.
But a new report from the Climate Council announces, global warming will put at risk coastal infrastructure worth up to 226 billion dollars!
Storms, hurricane, flooding
Planet Earth is getting warmer. As a result melting of glaciers and polar ice caps will rise our sea levels by 3,2 mm a year. The report warns that these seemingly small increases matter because they severely exacerbate extreme weather events, making coastal areas more vulnerable to storm surges and flooding.
In it’s worst-case scenario, $226bn in property, including houses, schools, hospitals and ports, would be exposed to flooding and erosion, making much of it unviable.
Countries like the Netherlands, the UK and Germany, don’t have time for climate sceptics, they get on with the job of preparing their countries for climate change.
Antarctica has the potential to contribute more than a meter of sea-level rise by 2100 and more than15 meters by 2500, if emissions continue unabated. In this case atmospheric warming will soon become the dominant driver of ice loss, but prolonged ocean warming will delay its recovery for thousands of years.
