Cornwall is affected by climate change a lot
Fistral beach and Holywell Bay are two of Cornwall’s beaches which could disappear under water if sea levels rise by several meters.
Cornwall is one of the UK counties which are the most affected by climate change. Cliffs are eroding and flooding risks are increasing.
As temperatures are going up, ice is melting and the sea levels are rising.
Data provided by NASA and shared via FireTree shows that Cornwall could lose most of its coast and beaches it is renowned for.
The website provides maps of the areas around the world which will be flooded according to how high the sea levels will rise.
