Five Cities That Are Vulnerable to Rising Seas

五个易受海平面上升影响的城市

背景:南极的思韦茨冰川(Thwaites Glacier)面积与美国佛罗里达州相当,若全部融化,将导致全球海平面上升3.5米。这一可怕前景让它获得了“末日冰川”的称号。还有更可怕的,思韦茨冰川保护着西南极冰盖(West Antarctica Ice Sheet)免受温暖海水的侵蚀,西南极冰盖全部融化能让海平面上升61米。未来的一个世纪沿海城市面临严峻挑战,这已经是不争的事实。我们急需改变对洪水的看法和应对措施。因为“堵”的作用非常有限,海水堤坝越高其倒塌的风险也越大,而“顺”水以及和学会与水共存才是长久之道。荷兰在这方面走在世界前列,采取了基于自然的解决方案,一方面在城市的低人口密度区域建立蓄洪空间,另一方面在高人口密度区域建立防护机制。
