    Heritage Treasures Threatened By Climate Change

    Climate change endangers dozens of World Heritage sites

    Sandee LaMotte, October 16, 2018 (CNN)

    “…Across the Mediterranean region, flood risk may increase by 50% and erosion risk by 13% by the year 2100…with considerably higher increases at specific World Heritage sites, areas chosen to be preserved due to their importance in human history…The impact on those historical icons would be significant…unless actions are taken quickly…[According to a new scientific study, many of the 1,092 cultural historical sites on the 2018 World Heritage List] are already at risk from rising sea levels. Venice, for example, has been thought to be sinking for years. In reality, Venice floods regularly, and has done so for centuries. In 1996 a combination of rain, high tides and high wind caused the canals to rise a devastating 6 feet above normal levels…

    …The researchers ranked and compared 49 locations facing the highest risk…Flooding risk was highest for cities along the northern Adriatic Sea. Some are in severe danger now. Besides Venice and its lagoon, the Italian city of Ferrara and its wetlands of Po Delta and the Patriarchal Basilica of Aquileia at the northern coast of Italy are currently at high risk due to rising sea levels…[The study also] found 42 of the 49 sites were suffering coastal erosion today…[By 2100, the Lebanese city of Tyre topped the list of cities endangered by erosion…followed by Ephesus, Greece, known for the nearby Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. In equal danger are Heraion, a large temple dedicated to Hera in Samos, Greece, and the Archaeological Ensemble of Tárraco in Spain, said to be the first and oldest Roman settlement on the Iberian Peninsula…” click here for more
