New BC Government Report Says to Prepare for Sea Level Rise

A new BC government report says that we should prepare for sea level rises of 0.5 metres by 2050, 1.0 metres by 2100 and 2.0 metres by next century—and re-evaluate again in three years to see if these figures hold. They might be worse.

The writers of the report are not worried yet about increasing storm intensities or storm surges on the north coast, but recommend we monitor the situation and see how things evolve.

Just try not to build the dyke (or the town) too low.
