April 2016 was the hottest April on record globally. Whatever your views on climate change and the causes, scientists are recording record breaking data that cannot be ignored. How fast are sea levels rising and how this will effect coastal communities practically and economically?
At the Bude Wave Conference we heard from Nick Ely, Tom Luddington and Karen Burrows talking about the issues, the stats and the facts. Geographical changes, flooding, sea level rise, what is the impact of flooding on a coastal community and what are the positive changes we can all make… lowering carbon pollution from fossil fuels, building an energy system run by clean, renewable energy like solar, wind and wave power, reducing our demand for energy, by investing in warm homes and smart technology.
