Another group of 27 American and European scientists designates 350 ppm as a "planetary boundary" known, when transgressed, to increase "the risk of irreversible change in the loss of major ice sheets, accelerated sea-level rise and abrupt shifts in forest and agricultural systems." Glaciers are disappearing at alarming rates.
1 priority for Louisiana should be to combat global warming and accelerated sea-level rise.
The looming possibility of both accelerated sea-level rise and more frequent large hurricanes poses an unprecedented threat and multiplies the unpredictability of coastal risks.
Although actions such as beach nourishment or hard stabilization provide a degree of mitigation, they are costly and will become prohibitively expensive for most areas in the coming decades because of accelerated sea-level rise, Leatherman and Burkett Predict.
This accelerated sea-level rise is thought to be linked mainly to the "El Nino" weather phenomenon, which has become markedly more frequent and intense over the past two decades.
Accelerated sea-level rise, like global warming, represents an environmental threat of unprecedented proportion.
But the prospect of accelerated sea-level rise implies that maintaining this level of safety may require additional investments of up to $10 billion by 2040.
Taking action now to safeguard coastal areas will have immediate benefits while preventing losses from soaring higher in the event of an accelerated sea-level rise. Limiting coastal development is a first step, although strategies to accomplish this will differ in every country.
