Thomas and Paula Graham dancing in the Jerusalema dance video shoot. Most low-lying atoll islands are likely to become uninhabitable by the middle of the century, according to a new study. Scientists predict that as sea levels rise, thousands of islands will be afflicted by frequent flooding, lack of freshwater and damage to infrastructure. The scientists used current global greenhouse gas emission rates to predict future impacts of the changing climate on Roi-Namur, part of the Marshall Islands’ Kwajalein Atoll. They found that when local sea level around the island reaches one metre higher than present, at least half of the island will flood every year. I would like to be emailed about offers, events and updates from The Independent. Floods destroyed eight bridges and ruined crops such as wheat, maize and peas in the Karimabad valley in northern Pakistan, a mountainous region with many glaciers. In many parts of the world, glaciers have been in retreat, creating dangerously large lakes that can cause devastating flooding when the banks break.

Water levels in reservoirs, like this one in Gers, France, have been getting perilously low in areas across the world affected by drought, forcing authorities to introduce water restrictions. Work in this area has primarily focused on rising sea levels literally engulfing islands, but the new study by Dr Storlazzi and his team took a broader view. Their analysis considered interactions between sea-level rise and wave dynamics over coral reefs. Such interactions will likely drive annual flooding events on atolls that will not only destroy infrastructure but contaminate island freshwater sources. This means that islands previously thought to be safe for at least a century could in fact be severely threatened within decades. Dr Stephen Gingerich, USGS hydrologist and co-author of the report.

Rainfall later in the year is not enough to flush out the saltwater and refresh the island’s water supply before the next year’s storms arrive repeating the overwash events. Due to the imminent threat faced by so many island communities, the researchers called for governments to prioritise funding and adaptation efforts. Marshall Islands politicians have been particularly vocal in calls for world governments to meet the terms of the Paris climate agreement and limit global warming due to the existential threat their country faces. The islands are home to around 70,000 people, and experts have said it is likely they will all have to be evacuated as the sea levels rise. Cheap, capable of being made into any conceivable shape, strong and durable, plastic is something of a wonder material. However, the victim of this success appears to be much of life on Earth. And humans, one day, could find themselves among them. For some 79 per cent of the plastic produced over the last 70 years has been thrown away, either into landfill sites or into the general environment.

Just nine per cent is recycled with the rest incinerated. This has been described as «an uncontrolled experiment on a global scale» by scientists. How much plastic is in the sea? With more than eight million tonnes going into the oceans every year, it is estimated there will be more plastic than fish by 2050 and 99 per cent of all the seabirds on the planet will have consumed some. 500 times more than stars in our galaxy. Some plastic is toxic and it can disrupt hormones crucial for a healthy existence. I would like to be emailed about offers, events and updates from The Independent.

Seven Seas Splendor is certainly the perfect size for a luxury ship with distinguished spaces at every turn. Where it feels Regent has not achieved «Luxury Perfected» is the entertainment, it may get picked up by the wind and blown about.

Unsurprisingly, gulping down all this indigestible poison instead of food is bad for their health. So far, it is known that marine litter harms more than 600 species amid what some regard as the beginning of the sixth mass extinction of life on Earth. Why should we worry about pollution in the sea? Killing off sea creatures is bad for humans because we consume so much of it ourselves. 6 million tonnes were caught worldwide in 2015, according to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organisation. And, of course, just like other animals that plastic is likely to be finding its way into the tissues of our bodies with potentially harmful consequences. The world is, finally, starting to wake up to the problem. The US, China, Russia and Japan have not. The UK has banned microplastics in «rinse-off» cosmetics, like facial scrubs, but not «leave-on» products like make-up and suntan cream. Any other problems I should know about?

Plastic may also be contaminating the air we breathe. Plastic microparticles from cosmetics and microfibers from synthetic clothes are washed into the sewage system. While many pass through treatment plants and end up in the sea, others particles are caught up in sewage used to fertilise farmers’ fields. After it dries out, it may get picked up by the wind and blown about. There’s a real possibility that some of those microparticles will be entrained into the air and they will be carried around and we will end up breathing them. Anthropocene: What is the next epoch and has Planet Earth entered it? Perhaps not Earth-shattering, but definitely Earth-trashing. Plastic may end up being one of the defining characteristics of a new epoch in the planet’s history.

Eventually, the layer of plastic spread around the world from the 1950s onwards will form a noticeable line in the sedimentary rocks of the future. In a few decades, a blink of an eye in Earth’s 4. 5-billion-year history, plastic has not only changed the fabric of life but the very rocks.
