    Sea level rise is already redrawing coastlines around the world. What happens when the coast retreats through a major city? We look at how the world map will change in the year 2100, and what coastal cities can do to defend themselves.

    And still towns and cities are being built on flood plains, then despairing that they need to spend billions on sea defences. I live 5 miles from the coast, about 50m above sea level and I am unlikely to ever get flooded. London is a prime example of a city that should have been abandoned a hundred years ago.
