Coastal residents around the world will age rapidly: the cause of the anomaly is named
Against the backdrop of global warming, rising sea levels will lead to a sharp surge in migration. Young people will move inland, away from the coast.
This actually means that residents of coastal zones around the world will age rapidly. The details were reported by the Daily Mail.
A new study estimates that climate change could lead to a 10-year increase in the average age of coastal residents by 2100.
Sociologist Matt Hauer, lead author of the study and a professor at Florida State University, emphasized that this could provoke dramatic disruptions in the ability to provide vital health services.
Mass migration away from the sea will have a global scale. We often underestimate the dangers of global warming. Rising sea levels will force hundreds of millions of people around the world to seek refuge inland.
Most of them will be young people. This, in turn, will lead to an aging population in coastal areas. In the abandoned beach towns, certain groups of people will remain, mostly older people, who will not want to leave their homes and places where they have spent their entire lives.
