A relevant opportunity to raise climate ambition and the role of electric mobility in the transition to a decarbonised and prosperous economy and society.

Rising sea levels as a result of global warming threaten the ecosystems that nourish the coasts as well as the prosperity of their inhabitants.

There is no place in the world that can escape the effects of climate change. Neither can the UK, nor can its coasts. This is one of the reasons why Extreme E wants to raise awareness, in the last race of the first season of the championship, about one of the consequences that the climate crisis is producing: the rise in sea level. This phenomenon is causing coastal land erosion, endangering homes, surrounding crops and habitats, as well as tourist areas, affecting not only the environmental but also the social and economic structure of communities.

And how does sea level rise? In three ways: by thermal expansion (water tends to expand as it warms up, increasing the size of the oceans), by melting ice in Antarctica and Greenland, and by the melting of polar caps and glaciers.

THE PROBLEM

Rising sea levels, caused by climate change, are eroding coastal ecosystems, threatening the environmental balance and the communities prosperity that inhabit these environments.

SOLUTIONS

  • Extreme E continues to define the Legacy programme for the final race of the year. According to the official information on its website, it will reveal the details days before the event.
