The ongoing climate change the world and the Philippines in particular has experienced recently like Typhoon Glenda and Typhoon Yolanda, which by far was the strongest storm ever recorded in history will become more common and also raise baseline sea levels and increase general risk in coastal flooding. We’re seeing today that aside from massive lives being lost, the indirect economic damage of flooding a major urban area can be severe — electric power can be out for days and also transportation lines can be crippled. This is already happening worldwide and is a major issue that must be addressed. We are beyond controlling the Greenhouse effect but of course, that too must be controlled.
Here’s a you tube video by National Geographic featuring an engineering marvel done in Kuala Lumpur, Malayasia, called SMART Motorway Tunnel, to view the video, click on the link below :
Take note that this project has been tested and countries that are below sea level such as the Netherlands have successfully addressed this problem.
What great vision and planning !
have a great day !
