like it was before. this past summer was one of the hottest on record for increasing climate change is starting to pose a threat to life on. the sea level is rising and storms sturges' are getting stronger. as far as long term prognoses go all of the climate researchers all of the serious studies that i read make me fear for our children's future because it's not just my restaurant that might disappear but the entire island. and votes restaurant right on the beach would be one of the first places affected angered by the politicians lack of action on climate change that act in votes on taking the e.u. to court. the sea levels already risen by over twenty centimeters since the one nine hundred fifty s. that means storm surges are higher and the danger for us on the island lies back
