BRIAN & ANGELA

COASTAL EROSION UK - A Sonnet

In the UK for every FIVE square miles

we have ONE mile of rugged coast !

With the rise in sea level we really .....

are under threat.  Love to live near the coast

with lovely views of the sea and the ships.

BUT - when coast erodes - the houses go too.

Some second homes - some owned by Pensioners !

 

House built too near the coast are worthless

no one wants to buy then or even rent ......

You don't want to end up - lost in the sea !

We don't build too near the coast any more.

How can we stop it - houses under threat ?

We must stop global warming - ice caps are ......

melting causing the sea levels to rise !
