The costs of protecting cities from rising sea levels and storms are likely to rise so is costs of repairing storm damage,” it said. “Decisions made today can have a profound impact on security, culture and lives of people of this ancient city. Like much of Japan, Osaka has network of seawalls and other coastal defences in place to combat tsunami although their effectiveness disputed in the aftermath of the 2011 triple disasters. Osaka city authorities are investing in other infrastructure to mitigate effects of flooding, but public education is vital, according to Toshikazu Nakaaki, Osaka municipal government environmental bureau. Past response was focused on reducing causes of global warming, but given that climate change is inevitable, according to Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), discussions turned to how to respond to the natural disasters that will follow,” Nakaaki said. Like other major coastal city areas it is anticipated Osaka will be affected by natural disasters caused by the climate change. So needs to establish exactly what might happen in advance to help prepare adequate tools for survival and how much financial damage it causes.
The expected sea levels rising is a point worth noting now rather than in the future as seas are already rising. Keiko Kanai is aware that her home city is susceptible to natural disasters. She heard historically, tsunamis caused by earthquakes put many parts of Osaka underwater and knows some parts of the world are at risk too from rising sea levels,” said Kanai, who teaches at local university. But didn’t put two and two together until now did not give much thought to the idea Osaka too could be engulfed by rising sea levels. Kaori Akazawa, a nursing care consultant, said flooding was a consideration when she was deciding where in Osaka to live. When she moved there she talked to her colleagues about risks, she said. That is why shr always rented apartments on the fourth storey or higher. Alhough it is worrying, never considerd moving. In Alexandria, Egypt 3 million people are affected. On the Alexandria Corniche, waves slowly lap at a shoreline dotted with plastic chairs and umbrellas from beachside cafes. Students perch on steps of imposing Alexandria library. Its the same coastline that draws locals to its scenic vistas threatening to slowly engulf historic city as sea levels rises.
The IPCC reported that Alexandria’s beaches would be submerged with a 0.5-metre sea-level rise, while 8 million people would be displaced by flooding in Alexandria and the Nile Delta if no protective measures are taken. A 3C world threatens far greater damage than that. Yet for many residents, there is little public information to connect the increasingly chaotic weather and floods with climate change. The vast majority of Alexandrians do not have access to knowledge so quite worrying. Experts say governments must raise awareness of problems not wait until it too late as already happening, said 22-year-old student Kareem Mohammed. It is necessary to train people to prepare in advance for high waves damaging a city impacted by storm surges. Some do not realise urgency of such impending disasters so everyone thinks we should act on this problem 50 or 80 years from now, agreed his friend, Hazem Hassan, a student in marine biology at a nearby Alexandria University.Officials maintain protective measures are being taken as Egypt spends 700m EGP [£30m] annually to protect north coast,” said Dr Magdy Allam, head of Arab Environmental Experts Union and was part of the Egyptian environment ministry. So miracles are needed to save humanity from drowning by highwaves towering over cities breaching walls too small to contain such pressures. Allam cited Mohammed Ali sea wall, built in 1830 as key protection as well as the concrete blocks lining the shoreline designed to detour flood water away from residential neighbourhoods. But critics say this is far from enough given the large-scale high wave problems. So studies indicating the city, one of many coastal human settlements around the world will be partially submerged by 2070 if nothing is done,” said Ahmed Hassan, of Save Alexandria Initiative, a group that works to raise awareness of the effects of climate change on the city.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
1.8 million people affected as residents of Brazil’s postcard city with plenty of reasons to fear global warming even if they do not quite know it. According to Climate Central temperature rise of 3C would cause flooding of not just Rio’s famous beaches such as Copacabana and its waterfront domestic airport, but also inland areas of the Barra de Tijuca neighbourhood, where that last year’s Olympic Games were held. Barra is built around a network of heavily polluted lagoons that empty into the sea. The prospect of it being underwater alarms resident Sueli Gonçalves, 46, who runs pensioners’ health projects, with a 23-year-old son Yuri Sanchez carrying the shopping past Olympic Park. “My God. Oh Jesus,” she said, with nervous laugh will leave there, go to United States, To Canada.” The family knew about global warming but unaware of potential scale of impact on upscale neighbourhood of smart condominiums and the shopping mall. She said, Nobody takes it seriously people do not think longterm. The storm surges recently destroyed hundreds of metre’s beautiful beachfront pavement overlooking Macumba beach, a popular surfing spot on Rio’s western fringes. Last year, heavy waves in other storm surges felled an elevated, clifftop cycle path between Leblon beach and Barra de Tijuca which had not been built to survive high seas, killing two people.
So last year, Rio’s city government and the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro produced a study entitled Strategy for Adapting to Climate Change. Current challenge consist of the need to deepen knowledge and monitoring of oceanic phenomena and the evolution of the sea bed and coast,” a spokeswoman for the city’s secretariat of the environment said in an email. An “adaption plan” for climate change produced with the help of professors from federal university suggests strategies to deal with needs and vulnerabilities in areas such as transport, health and housing. But so far little has been done. Nara Pinto, 38, who lives in the sprawling Rocinha favela and sells snacks on the pavement overlooking Copacabana beach, said the loss of Rio’s famous beaches would cost a lot of jobs. “The beach is tourist point,” she said. What can be done to stop this?
17.5 million people affected if Shanghai is completely gone some think they will move to Tibet!” says the resident Wang Liubin, when he is shown projections for the city after 3C of global warming. When it comes to flooding coastal city is one of the world’s most vulnerable. As one of the world’s biggest ports, former fishing village is bordered by Yangtze river in the north and divided through the middle by the Huangpu river; the municipality involves several islands, two long coastlines, shipping ports, and miles of canals, rivers, and waterways. In 2012, a report from a team of UK and Dutch scientists declared Shanghai the most vulnerable major city in the world to serious flooding, based on the factors such as numbers of people living close to the coastline, time needed to recover from flooding, and measures to prevent floodwater. According to those Climate Central projections, 17.5 million people could be displaced by rising waters if the global temperatures increase by 3C. Projections show a vast majority of city could be submerged in water, including much of the downtown area, landmarks such as Lujiazui skyline and historical Bund, airports and outlying Chongming Island. Since 2012, the government has been making steady inroads to tackle the threat, including building China’s largest deepwater drainage system beneath Suzhou Creek waterway, made up of 15km of pipes to drain rainwater across a 58 sq km area. It has rolled out 40bn yuan (£5bn) River Flood Discharge project stretching for 120km between Lake Taihu and the Huangpu river to try to mitigate the risk of upstream lake flooding. Flood prevention walls are being built along waterfront in places so high the river is blocked from view and 200km more are promised across city’s outlying districts. Flood controls are put in place along famous Bund waterfront, where walkway was raised to help counter flood risk, as well as a series of water controls and dams.
2.7 million people are affected but few other cities in the world have as much go lose from rising sea levels as Miami, and the alarm bells sound ever louder with each successive the king tide that overwhelms coastal defences and sends knee-deep seawater coursing through downtown streets. Locals consider this the “new normal” if the biggest city of Florida’s largest metropolitan area is to cease to exist with 3C temperature rise. At 2C, forecasts show the entire bottom third of Florida area south of the Lake Okeechobee currently home to more than 7 million people submerged, with grim projections for the rest of the state in a little more than half a century. In Miami-Dade county alone, almost $15bn of coastal property at risk of flooding in the next 15 years. A sense of urgency is evident at city hall as commissioners are asking voters to approve a Miami Forever Bond in the November ballot including $192m for upgrading pump stations, improving drainage to raising sea walls. As a really precious city many people love it willing to invest right now but it is going to take lots of more funds to protect it,” said Ken Russell, the city commission’s vice-chair. Last year, the city of Miami appointed sea-rise expert Jane Gilbert in newly created role chief resilience officer with instructions for a robust stormwater management plan to look at storm surge like Hurricane Irma in September which brought significant flooding to downtown Brickell and the neighbouring Coconut Grove. Proposals include elevating roads or abandoning neighbourhoods to the water to protect others. Needs universal recognition all in this together, to protect this amazing global city that it has become,” she said. Natalia Ortiz, grew up in Miami, fears the future as its very scary,” said Ortiz, who works with Cleo, a climate change advocacy group. Says son is 11 daughter nine, so they’re young but thinks about their future, will they be able to raise their children in Miami the way had the luxury of raising mine?”
California and Canada
California awaiting ‘big one’ caused by stress faultline increasing earthquakes and subsequent tsunamis. September 2017, CALIFORNIA was rocked by 28 earthquakes in just 24 hours, sparking fears “big one” could roar any moment soon. Big One if hits California has huge earthquake rattles Mexico. California earthquake catastrophic San Andreas fault ruptures causes deadly tremors in Mexico. Powerful 7.1 quake in Mexico City kills 200 people warned to prepare survival kits of food. California’s next ‘The Big One’ 03:43 (CNN) Channel, 30th September 2017. The scene is terrifying as entire sections of a Mexico crumbled so people are being warned to get ready for any changes that will take place. San Andreas Fault in California stretching in continental fault extends roughly 1,200 kilometers California. It forms tectonic boundary between Pacific Plate, North American Plate and motion is right-lateral strike-slip. Its Length:1,200 km (750 miles) with Cities:San Francisco affected among others. UN is warning 3C of global warming redraws the map of the world. UN climate negotiators met for summit talks this month on new figure on data. Until now, global efforts as Paris climate agreement tried to limit global warming to 2C a pre-industrial levels. Projections point to increase of 3.2C by 2100, goals slipping out of reach. Most people love the sea drawn to live close by as possible. Surfers do wonders encourageous daring displays to attract people in search of adventure. Good to enjoy life, have fun equally important to educate people of these imminent risks involved. Rapid changes mean decisions to do enough to save precious hundreds of millions of people from such future,” said Erik Solheim UN environment chief at Bonn conference. Biggest threats to cities around the world sea-level rise, caused by expansion of water at higher temperatures and melting ice sheets on the north and the south poles. Scientists at the non-profit organisation Climate Central estimate 275 million people worldwide live in areas that will be flooded at 3C of global warming.
In 2000, living in landlocked region with no sea whatsoever I was completely surrounded by the high sea waves yet not drowned in a dream. It was before popular internet data readily available or current events recorded on tsunamis so the dream bothered me. I went to an environmental lecture the next day and the lecturer’s topic was on exactly what I saw in the dream. He showed us maps and gave notes on the rising sea levels and the earthquakes happening. I did not mention my dream to anyone just was amazed at the information given. The lecture said it was all happening so continues to happen. He gave namelist of same cities and many more in lecture notes that will be submerged if nothing is done about them advance. It sent a chill down my spine as I pondered over those lecture notes. I recalled my dream and felt spirit of heaviness crying tears over the details. I mentioned to some people affected if possible to move or do something about it to help others. On the whole not long after dream so many cities shared on TV high wave disasters we were taught about. The lecturer said he had friends who owned tourist travel businesses in some of those places so was also deeply concerned. Then other places like Louisiana, the Philippines, Japan among other started experiencing the highwaves. In addition, tidal Sun and moon magnetic waves compound a sea warmed up to produce huge waves. As Fatima predicted in 1917 tsunamis to be shared in 1962, it was sealed and was never made public so many perished. In Isaiah 52:7 God’s word says beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of one who brings good news to publish peace bringing good news of happiness and publishes salvation saying to Zion, Your God reigns. In same way God extends HIS Mercy and grace by delaying these disasters so people can hear the Gospel before it is too late. As Moses and Israel faced red sea and were miraculously saved and delivered from danger so God is able to save those crying unto Him to save humanity once again. With God all things are possible ask for God’s miraculous protection and deliverance. Jesus calmed storm at sea so call Jesus to help and be kind to yourself listening to instructions on the weather forecasts. Take action in advance to preserve lives in Jesus Name because God is able.
This happenings sadly are part of end time judgements of WRATH of God and Wrath of Christ. Humanity is given a choice to change behaviour patterns since invention of electricity damage to earth increased. From planes throwing nuclear bombs to chem trails or missiles there comes a point God wants earth to be restored from destructions. People are unwilling to accept change or live simple lives that does not destroy earth with plastic wastes, damaging flora and fauna. Toxic chemical destroy nature, organic plants and human lives now suffering from previously unheard of diseases. God decided enough is enough so sending Nibiru wormwood to cause havoc to shake earth. God waited 6,000 years patiently by hoping all mankind would come their senses by their own choice to submit to God. Although It is true billions love God and devoted to HIM transition is taking place by God wanting to restore HIS earth to original perfection again. The great Tribulation cataclysmic unfolding sadly gets worse before it gets better. If you are reading this article make sure you are in God’s Kingdom by accepting His Son. This is condition God gives for HIS salvation plan through Jesus to endure ETERNAL life. After Rapture things get worse so do not be left behind in Jesus Name. The new earth replace old destroyed planet. The Bible creator of universe takes back HIS property as God destroyed people by flood waters in Noah’s days and fire, Sodom and Gomorrah. Jesus said, as in days of Noah, Sodom and Gomorrah so will be until Son of man Jesus returns to take back power to rule to Reign KING of Kings on earth in Israel.
