I do post constantly about sustainability in logistics , and I do try to keep up with research in that area, but the Video and the research presented in the Video below, really scared the sh.. out of me.
If this research is anywhere near correct, and I do appreciate that not all research is 100% correct, we can say goodbye to huge landmasses within the next 20 to 50 years.
That is even within my life expectancy. We can then say goodbye to Holland, Denmark, huge parts of northern Germany and many other low-lying geographies, and this will include big cities like Amsterdam, Miami Beach, and New York. In fact, we will lose most of the big cities situated at coastlines.
This leads me to speculate as to whether all decisions, be that commercial, private, and political decisions, should be made with sustainability as the only parameter.
It will change the way we work, travel, consume, live, and it will be brutal for many of us, and require a complete change of lifestyle. The alternative will be to give up huge landmasses and experience the biggest re-allocation of people in the history of mankind.
Thanks to Paul Davies for heads up on this one
