LIFESTYLE Climate change

Due to global warming, sea levels are rising rapidly. This could wreak havoc around the globe, as millions of people will be directly impacted by elevated water levels. If you're someone who doesn't feel directly threatened by these changes, it can be hard to visualize how the world might look in the future. Climate Central, the organization that researches the impact of climate change, including sea level rise and coastal flooding, has created a map that shows which parts of the world could find themselves threatened by rising sea levels. Keep in mind that a lot can change, and ideally governments could finally take serious action to address the climate crisis. However if they don't, these studies can help us prepare for the potential consequences.  

To find out which cities around the globe could find themselves below tide level as early as 2030, check out this gallery.
