Of all the climate dynamics and effects of global warming sea level rise is the one we understand the least
Different views on Sea level rise
Sea level rise is a new and growing challenge with several perspectives on it . (illustration ref. di1667 )
Four strategies to face sea level rise
Coastal cities and places are finding new solutions against the rising seas using: protection, adaptation, withdrawal or avoidance (Illustration ref: di01660)
Choosing types of coastal protection
Communities can choose from many ways to create coastal defenses to prepare for future sea level rise (drawing: di01664 )
Cooperation on coastal protection
I can be a challenge for neighboring municipalities to coordinate and think of solutions together ( illustration ref: di01656 )
We are all experts in some way
We need to talk together - experts can talk very convincing, but sometimes it is worth remembering that the more expert, the more narrow perspective ( illustration ref. di01663)
Climate protection can be more
di01662 - Many climate measures will only come into use in extreme storm and weather situations, and to make them better investments and more useful, planners and architects have started to put experiences and other functions into them
User skepticism about change
Di01666 - New projects can run into what is called NIMBY: "Not in my backyard"
Climate solutions in the sea close to land
Di01665 - The sea close to land is far more important both for biodiversity and protection against rising seas and storm surges than previously thought
Nature based sea protection
Di01657 - More and more solutions for securing the coasts against rising seas and storm surges use both nature as inspiration and buffer
Un-noticed vs sudden sea rise
Di01659 Graph of the sudden and unexpected surge, which we can recover from, and then the slow, predictable, but unstoppable rising sea, which we have to move from sooner or later
Storm surge and sea level rise
Di01658 Sea level rise is the slow turtle that steadily, but quietly crawls up a little higher on the beach every year. Storm surge is the increasingly large bird, flapping its waves, flying fast and destructively inland, soon to be gone again, so reconstruction can begin. With the turtle, no rebuilding is possible.

The warming of the planet just broke a new record, as more than 20 degrees Celsius was recorded on Antarctica ( The Southpole ) reports several media
