ESA Euronews: Studying climate threats with Sentinel
The most recent trends in sea level rise mean the low-lying Camargue region of southern France could be submerged by the sea by the end of the century.
The sea walls built along the coast in the 1980s have already been broken by the waves, as a combination of rising waters, slowly sinking landmass, and reduced amounts of sediment from the Rhone river spell trouble for this environment.
Anis Guelmami uses Copernicus Sentinel satellites to study wetlands like the Camargue, and he tells us the latest news from space.

Climate change is inevitable…climate threats are manageable
You dont hear about the effects a warming planet would have on the gulf stream or the jet stream or all the other streams enough. From what ive read the weather systems are in a delicate state and we could alter them permanently which will be devastating.
CO² is indeed a problem on climate change, but if we had normal CO² rates on the atmosphere the climate would keep changing due to the precession of the equinoxes and it seems that everybody ignores that. The excess o CO² on atmosphere play its role accelerating the process of what is already meant to happen.
