Reducing Harmful Emissions to Better Protect our Coast Lines

· Commenting

As extreme weather events continue to grow in frequency and intensity as evidenced by ongoing current events, it is crucial for the public at large to understand and to attribute the sources of these events to human-induced climate change, including sea level rise, influence policy and decisions makers in the run up to elections.

 

As harmful chemical emissions from fossil-fuel extraction and production continue to increase, SLR has correspondingly increased by over 800 percent since 1993. Never before used damning such as Maeslant in Holland are within millimeters of overflowing. Millions of properties are losing value in flood zones.

 

According to our most current research, 40 percent of SLR is attributed to ocean warming while and another 33 percent is attributed to increasingly melting glaciers.

 

The UN panel tasked with regulating climate change expects SLR with current satellite technology alone to double its current rate in this century at current harmful carbon emission levels.

 

Reliable satellite measurements are fairly new with the first relatively reliable ones measured in 2017.

 

However, current satellite technology cannot measure accurately near tall buildings, in valleys or in mountain ranges leading to underestimates of intensity and frequency of events as well as magnitude and scope of damages and losses suffered by too many.

 

The cost of SLR has soared to hundreds of trillions of dollars as 140 countries with borders on seas and ⅔ of the largest cities are coming under harsher threats where the vast majority of our residents, properties and industries are located.

 

Of course we can all set positive examples to improve property values as well as reduce harmful emissions and improve air, soil and water quality for the most impact to reduce this disturbing trend SLR.
