Cli­mate change could flood Glas­gow Airport

Evening Times - - NEWS -

CLI­MATE change could cause the Forth Rail­way Bridge and Glas­gow Airport to be flooded by ris­ing sea lev­els within just 30 years, sci­en­tists claim.

En­tire towns which are be­low the lo­cal sea level could be sub­merged, they said, in­clud­ing Cly­de­bank and Dum­bar­ton, in West Dun­bar­ton­shire, and neigh­bour­hoods

Partick and Go­van in Glas­gow.

A map pro­duced by Cli­mate Cen­tral, an in­de­pen­dent or­gan­i­sa­tion of leading sci­en­tists, pre­dicts the im­pact cli­mate change would have by 2050.

The re­port pro­duced warned that sea de­fences could be ren­dered use­less within the life­times of most people alive to­day.
