Whether or not you've seen An Inconvenient Truth, we all should be aware by now that global warming is real and its effects massive.
I was reminded again yesterday, as it was reported on NPR.org, that the immediate affects of rising sea levels (rising over a foot in the next century) will affect up to 634 million people who currently live in low-elevation coastal zone. That will equate to 1 in 10 people having their current home underwater in the next century.
And who, more exactly, will be affected? The 10 countries with the most people in the low coastal areas are China, India, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Indonesia, Japan, Egypt, United States, Thailand, and the Philippines.
Utah never looked so good.
