Some of the country’s most iconic coasts, from Blackpool Beach to Dungeness, might vanish in just 30 years. According to the most recent statistics provided by the non-profit Climate Central, large swaths of the country are at risk of being submerged below forecasted sea levels. The hazard of climate change has been connected to rising sea levels, increasing coastal flooding, and higher tides. The ominous predictions come in the wake of the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, which cautioned that people are to blame for the global warming catastrophe. Climate Central’s maps have highlighted which areas of the country may be flooded in the next 30 years. Many of the coasts of Hampshire, Sussex, and Kent in the south of England are painted red. Portsmouth, Bognor Regis, and Worthing, as well as areas of Southampton, Cosham, and Chichester, are among them. Dungeness and the Dungeness National Nature Reserve, are predicted to be swamped.
