These are clear warning signs that the sea levels are rising, but I don’t think that world governments and the major polluters are ready to see them for what they are. I found it interesting to hear one of the locals talking about a beach that once was there on which they played football – now it’s totally gone. When I see our beaches here in Australia I often wonder about the same thing. And in addition here we don’t have struggling fishermen’s houses being endangered but multi-million dollar mansions; not that I care much about them except that their loss will force me to pay higher insurance premiums, which of course I do resent.
