Erosion in Alaska

Photo | 25 March, 2011

The Arctic is feeling the effects of climate change faster than most places on the planet. The shrinking sea ice is having effects on the coastline, like here in Shishmaref, Alaska. The absence of sea ice until very late in the year is accelerating erosion and causing some locals to lose their homes. In the past the ice would protect the island against the waves which nowadays eat away Shishmaref 6-15 meters per year. These days there is no ice until the end of December.
