Why we should worry about climate change’s effects on coastal regions
If you live in a coastal region, you’ve likely heard about the growing threat of sea level rise.
In fact, we’re now seeing sea level rises of 3 feet and rising by another 1 foot a decade.
The question is: Can these changes really be avoided?
A coastal region is the region that covers the highest areas of land and sea, like the Great Lakes and the Great Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
If you’re living in the coastal region you may not be aware that coastal areas are already at risk.
They are the areas where the oceans absorb or soak up the oceanic heat and water that comes up from the atmosphere and land.
Sea level rise is one of the main ways that our climate is changing.
A warming world is going to have an impact on coastal communities.
That’s why we have to be careful when we talk about sea level.
If we don’t do something about it, coastal communities will suffer.
We already know that climate change is affecting coastal communities, but how are we doing?
Recode interviewed the experts on climate change, including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Department of Defense, and the National Science Foundation.
We asked them to describe what coastal regions are going through and how to prepare for these changes.
Here are some of the key points we learned.
In general, coastal areas have a lot more water than they used to.
And that water has been draining off the land.
But this is happening faster than you can imagine.
So, we’ve got this really big hole that we’re in, and it’s going to keep getting bigger.
We’re going to get inundated by the ocean.
When the sea level goes up, it’s because of global warming, so that the water that was absorbed by the land and the ocean becomes trapped in the ground, and that’s where the flooding happens.
We’ve already seen this happen in the South and Southeast, so we know this is a global phenomenon.
But if we don, we could have catastrophic effects on the coastal regions, we know that.
What happens in coastal communities depends on what happens in the climate system.
For example, sea level change affects areas in the North Atlantic that are located on land.
When that water is going over the North Sea and into the North American Gulf of Mexico, the sea is going up.
And the water is moving over the coastal communities in the area that are in that area.
If sea level continues to rise, that will cause these areas to become flooded.
In the Atlantic basin, the North Pole and the Antarctic Peninsula, the oceans are already about 3 feet higher than they were a century ago.
So if the sea continues to increase, there’s going be a lot of water that’s going over those regions.
We also have to take into account that climate changes affect the way that we live, like we did with the ice age.
We know that, when the ice ages ended, the climate changed in the Northern Hemisphere, and we saw more extreme weather, like heat waves, and more extreme droughts.
And when that ice melts, the land freezes over and becomes a lot less fertile.
So the climate is really changing.
But because of the way we live and because of our climate system, we can’t escape the effects.
We need to do something.
