deI feel sorry for the people living close to the ocean.
deWhy? Because of climate change?
deYes. With rising sea levels and more intense storms, they are in danger.
deI think it's a complex issue. In many places humans are also directly responsible for some of the dangers.
deWhat do you mean?
deFor example through the deforestation of mangrove forests. The mangroves used to be a natural barrier against storms.
deI didn't know that. Where do mangroves grow?
deThey grow for example in Asia. And lots of them have been cut down. People in these areas now suffer more from storms and floods.
deI see. I guess it's easier to just blame climate change instead of looking at the actual problem.
deBut you are also right. They will probably suffer even more once climate change comes into full effect.
deMakes sense. Once the sea level actually significantly rises, they really have no protection.
