A map of rising sea levels suggests that large parts of Greenwich could be underwater by 2030 if action isn't taken. 

The map was created by Climate Central, a team of scientists and communicators who researched how the changing climate could impact people's lives. 

Their latest sea-level research discovered that Greenwich will most likely fall below sea level by 2030 if action isn't taken now. 

The parts of Greenwich that might be overtaken by water are likely to be The O2, Cutty Sark, Old Naval College and a lot of residential areas.

The environmental change will be due to the continuous rise in water levels of the River Thames, which if action isn't taken could rise and overtake much, if not all, of the London boroughs around the Thames. 

As the Climate Central website shares: "A water level of 1.0 meters above the high tide line could be reached through combinations of sea level rise, tides, and storm surge."

How can we stop Climate Change?

However, there are many actions, some big and some small, which can be taken to stop Greenwich from becoming underwater.

From recycling, reusing, and repairing items to throwing away less food and using electric vehicles.

Those are just the small changes that can make a big impact and if you wanted to make an even bigger impact you could install solar panels for your home's energy.
