A shocking map reveals the English coastal towns most likely to collapse into the sea as shores erode over the next 20 years. Experts found that the east coast is being hardest hit, with the erosion rate the fastest in Yorkshire and the Humber, where 56 per cent of the coastline is at risk. Alongside this, around a third of the coast in the south of England is being actively eroded — threatening such areas as Norfolk, Suffolk and East/West Sussex.

The ongoing retreat of the shoreline will cause around 7,000 homes to disappear into the sea by the end of century, experts warn — unless more action is taken. Protection is particularly needed in the counties of Norfolk, Tyne and Wear, Suffolk and Yorkshire over the next two decades.

Under this scenario, where planet-warming emissions are barely constrained and the seas rise by about 6.5ft globally by the end of the century , 311, 000 homes along the US coastline would face flooding on average 26 times a year within the next 30 years – a typical lifespan for a new mortgage.

Alongside the projected loss of thousands of homes, agency data also suggests that around 520,000 properties are presently in areas that are at risk of coastal flooding.

Each coastal region will be affected differently, it suggests . The east of England , with its low-lying and soft-sediment coasts, will be most vulnerable to erosion, with towns near estuaries particularly at risk . One of the towns that will be particularly affected is Llanelli, on the Loughor estuary in Wales.

If no action is taken, experts warn, this figure could be trebled to around 1.5 million homes by the 2080s. According to UK environment minister Thérèse Coffey, 'one in six people in England are already living in properties at risk of flooding.'This hazard is exacerbated by coastal erosion, rising sea levels and climate change.

'Our research highlights the increasing risk that many coastal residents are facing, to the point where some are ultimately looking at losing their homes over the next 20 years.'

'As land erodes, we could be seeing more expensive insurance premiums, as the danger of damage from climate change is higher than living inland.' The map, he added, has been designed to help people living in areas with a high risk of erosion understand what this means for them. To this end, the map also reveals the average cost of rebuilding a home in each area to replace those lost to the sea.

Louis Duxbury made the 17-minute "call to arms" video shortly after a series of terror attacks in 2017. A social media user at York St John University, where Duxbury was an undergraduate, saw the post and reported it to the police. Giving evidence at his trial last week, Duxbury claimed he was exercising his right to free speech.

Gallery: Islands That Will Disappear in Your Lifetime (24/7 Wall St.)

a small boat in a body of water: Island vacations are the stuff of dreams for tourists of all kinds, from adventurous backpackers to families to retirees. Places like Bora Bora, Tahiti, the Maldives, and the Seychelles hold a fascination for travelers who are drawn by the natural, unspoiled beauty. But these island paradises are under siege as human-caused climate change has lifted ocean temperatures, raised sea levels, and intensified storm severity. As a result, many of these islands could become partly submerged and uninhabitable within a few decades. The islands that make up Venice, one of the most beloved tourist destinations in the world -- and which famously floods frequently -- have recently been inundated with historically high flood waters that have imperiled its artistic treasures. Venice isn’t the only famous tourist spot threatened by climate change. Here are the attractions that are being destroyed by climate change. As nations attempt to address the climate change crisis, 24/7 Tempo has compiled a list of islands that might not exist in 20 years. We created our list by reviewing material from sources such as the United Nations, which calls climate change “the defining issue of our time,” and websites from nations to create our list. The rise in greenhouse gases, caused by the burning of fossil fuels, has led to an increase in temperatures all across the globe and glacial ice melting, causing sea levels to rise. In addition, as the oceans get warmer, they begin to expand, causing sea levels to rise further. The sea begins to eat away at coastlines, causing erosion. These are the effects of climate change that can’t be stopped.
