How worried are you about coastal erosion in Auckland?
Auckland's shoreline could recede by 200m by 2130 if little to no action on climate change is taken.
The report, titled "Predicting Auckland's exposure to coastal instability and erosion", details the impacts this will have on communities the Auckland region.
Sea level rise is notoriously difficult for scientists to follow and this has meant coastal erosion rates have been difficult to predict.
New Zealand's sea levels have risen an average 1.67mm per year since 1989, but the Ministry of Environment says this will accelerate if little action is taken on climate change.

This is a joke, right?
Did you see that "sponsored add" where The Warehouse advertises themselves as "sustainable" and "easier on our planet"?
Saw it the other day on the telly and now it's here as well.
What a hoax. The warehouse is as sustainable and easy on the planet as a nuclear power plant. 99% what's on there shelves is made in China and they are not known for sustainability. $$$$$$
