OTTAWA, Oct. 30, 2014 /CNW/ - Coastal planners and infrastructure designers must start preparations now, to prevent property damage and loss of life from extreme weather events and coastal flooding, according to the Canadian Climate Forum (CCF).
By 2100, sea levels in Atlantic Canada are expected to be between 20 cm and one metre higher than today's levels. In Forecasting a Sea of Change, a paper released today, the CCF highlights the stakes involved and the importance of considering the more extreme scenarios of sea level rise.
