Bad news for South Africa

New exploration from non-benefit bunch Climate Central shows how major waterfront urban areas throughout the planet are in danger because of rising ocean levels and environmental change. 

Environment Central is an autonomous gathering of researchers and communicators who examine and report current realities about our changing environment and what it means for individuals' lives. 

The gathering's most recent information, distributed for this present week in Environmental Research Letters, distinguishes which regions might be saved or lost in the long haul because of present-day environment activities, possibly attached to the results of the forthcoming COP26 UN environment dealings. 

"Many beachfront urban communities and land where dependent upon one billion individuals reside today are in question. Furthermore, the distinction between increments of 1.5C and 2.0C levels of warming is particularly intense," it said. 

"Contrasted with the leap from 2.0C to 3.0C, this more modest increment adds almost twice as much in danger populated region, featuring the outcomes of missing the most goal-oriented focuses in the Paris Agreement." 

Matched with information and symbolism from Google Earth, the examination empowers the exact delineation of projected water levels. Environment Central has arranged symbolism covering more than 100 seaside urban areas in 39 nations – remembering verifiable locales for Durban and Cape Town.
