Native Americans losing land from rising sea level by Theo the Blogger

How you doing everyone? It’s me Theo the Blogger!

I came across this article about Native American land on U.S. soil that is sinking into the Gulf of Mexico. The article claimed that 98% of the land was lost since 1955 due to the rising sea level.  At this point I’m sorry to say we seem to be losing the battle against slowing down the rising waters, which is because of global warming and we can’t stop it before it does its damage to the land. Unfortunately, as in this case, it’s almost always the poor and working class that suffers the most.

  1. Very good observation Theo! Permit me to add my two cents. On a wider spectrum of Global Warming threats to the livelihood of humanity, the poor people will always be hit the hardest and too, suffer. On the other hand, though engineers and other key stakeholders will give of their knowledge and skills to mitigate the severe impact of Global Warming on its environs, it is very important for everyone to be properly informed by legitimate means and too, become educated about what role they can play as individuals to make their positive contributions to saving their nation. Therefore, as drastic changes of the rise of the sea level increase, contours and land layouts will change too. Certainly, this kind of development becomes a grave concern for everyone.
