Rising sea levels will mean flooding of vulnerable cities- e.g: London, Jakarta, Shanghai and Houston

Edie 5th Oct 2018, London, Jakarta, Shanghai and Houston and other global cities that are
already sinking will become increasingly vulnerable to storms and flooding
as a result of global warming, campaigners have warned ahead of a landmark
new report on climate science.

The threat to cities from sea level rises is increasing because city planners are failing to prepare, the charity
Christian Aid said in the report. Some big cities are already subsiding –
the ground beneath Shanghai, for instance, is being pressed down by the
sheer weight of the buildings above – and rising sea levels resulting
from global warming will make the effects worse.
