Welcome to the Green Urbanist Podcast. My name is Ross and this podcast is about how urbanists of all kinds can step up the climate emergency.

This episode is Part 2 in a series on Climate Change is affecting and reshaping our cities. The topic is sea level rise and some of the points covered include:

  • Why the sea level is rising more in some cities, and dropping in others.
  • How melting ice caps shift Earth's rotation.
  • The effect of melting glaciars on the oceanic circulation system, and what this could mean, and
  • The story of Jakarta, the megacity that is being consumed by the rising tide.
