Imagine. Barcelona, 2100. 🤯
Our global sea levels have risen 16-21cm since 1900 but new studies reveal an accelerating rise. This serious acceleration is due to global warming that drives: the melting of ice sheets and thermal expansion (when water warms it increases in size). Whilst projecting future sea level rise is challenging, as our climate system is so complex, climate scientists expect the rate to further accelerate during the 21st Century. Just a few painful impacts of such a rise include coastal storm-surge flooding, coastal erosion and changes in water quality. This could devastate the lives of the millions of people who live in low-lying areas around the world. This is a terrible injustice because we don’t all contribute to this problem equally and often those who have contributed the least will suffer the most. This is unfair and the most pressing task is to address this injustice. We must reduce future greenhouse emissions as well as address consequences of carbon already emitted. Individual action is crucial: the decisions we make everyday have real consequences for our planet. We can all make small changes, to address how unevenly we contribute to the problem, that make big differences. Some of the best things you can do are reduce the amount of meat and dairy you eat, reduce the number of flights you take and reduce the amount of power you use. Every day makes a difference, every meal makes a difference.
