    Thank you for having published this great article. We need to make dramatic changes very fast and start planning ahead. It’s too late to do nothing. To save us from a worst case scenario, we need to take massive action. All coastal communities need to start moving to higher ground and Carbon Dioxide emissions need to be cut to be cut to such a degree that global warming will stop and not just keep increasing at a nonstoppable rate. World laws must be made on this issue. Governments need to be held accountable and punishments must be enforced on governments and people who ignore these laws as globalwarming affects all of us. In the Netherlands the people just won such a case against its own government. Let’s continue this trend.
