In the News (from Novosti): “Experts calculated that global warming will raise the sea level in the North Sea by a few meters. The consequences can be catastrophic. Only the Flemish region of Belgium has invested 300 million euros in the strengthening of the shores.
“With the onset of bad weather, the water level will rise 2.5 meters. If all goes as predicted, storms will be accompanied by waves up to 8 meters high. The whole of Europe is getting ready for the ‘storm of the Millennium’: Millions are being invested in the strengthening of coastal dams in the north of France, Holland, and Great Britain.”
