While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    Is London The Next Atlantis?

    London under threat of 'sinking' as global warming makes sea levels rise, new report finds; Analysis comes ahead of major international report on climate change

    Josh Gabbatiss, October 4, 2018 (UK Independent)

    London is among the cities identified as being at risk of major flooding, according to a new report…Sea levels are expected to rise by over 40cm unless global warming is limited to 1.5C above pre-industrial levels…[The new analysis] looks at some of the coastal cities most at risk…[It argues climate] change could act as a “threat multiplier” to existing problems such as sinking ground and subsidence, water extraction and bad planning…London’s sinking problem is largely a vestige of the last ice age when glaciers that weighed Scotland down and lifted up the south like a see-saw melted and reversed the effect…[but London] is also increasingly vulnerable as a result of sea level rises, with the city having to use its key primary flood defence, the Thames Barrier, more frequently, the report said…

    …Houston, Texas…Bangkok…Shanghai…Manila in the Philippines; Jakarta, Indonesia; Lagos, Nigeria, and Dhaka in Bangladesh are all also threatened by problems such as subsidence, groundwater extraction, a lack of adequate drainage, the weight of buildings and the loss of natural flood protection…With the increasing threat of climate change-induced sea level rises, the report warns the causes of the cities sinking must be tackled and greater and more rapid cuts to greenhouse gases are needed to curb the rising seas…[The much anticipated report is the is the product of] months of intense debate by scientists…[and suggests] the world is well on track to break the 1.5C target by the middle of the century…” click here for more
