FLOODING FOR FREO MARINE TERRACE

Posted in city of fremantle, development, living, Uncategorized by freoview on May 23, 2017

A new report by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts that rising sea levels would have dire consequences for Fremantle and Perth.

Marine Terrace, the Esplanade and Fishing Boat Harbour would be flooded, if the NOAA prediction is correct that it is more likely now that sea levels could rise up to 2.7 metres because of increased melting of antarctic ice.

Elizabeth Quay in Perth and other areas along the Swan River would also be impacted by the rising sea levels.

I wonder what it would do the the Port Coogee and South Beach developments and why the State Government and local governments still approve coastal development so close to the Indian Ocean when global warming is a serious threat to coastal development.
