#6: Climate Change in Cities Part 2 - Sea Level Rise and Jakarta, the Sinking Megacity

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.
