Storms and sea level change on The Project

The Project on TV3 screened an interesting item on sea level rise recently. It raised the issue of property becoming uninsurable and the costs of trying to save it, with no guarantee of success. It used the example of Petone, the venue of this year’s Coastal Restoration Trust conference, which is expected to be 3.5m under water by the turn of the century. To check it out go to here. It is about 5 minutes long and starts at about 1:20. You may need to login.
