For the past year and a half, I have been looking at the global consequences ofrising sea levels caused by climate change. Even with the sea level rising by only one or two meters, all the waterfronts and rivas on the Adriatic will be flooded. Today, no one any longer doubts that glaciers the world over are retreating, and even more worryingly that Greenland and Antartica are melting at an increasing pace. Climate change is making the sea level rise along Europe's coasts.
