The agency is creating projections for the eastern and southern coasts of the UK as to their susceptibility to erosion and rising sea levels. Former Cabinet minister and current head of the agency, Lord Smith said, “We are almost certainly not going to be able to defend absolutely every bit of coast – it would simply be an impossible task both in financial terms and engineering terms.” The agency is thus drafting contingency plans for moving potentially affected citizens to safer locations.

Lord Smith and the Environment Agency of the United Kingdom, we thank you for your efforts to prepare Britain for the consequences of climate change.  May all nations awaken and immediately work together to reduce greenhouse gas emissions so that rising sea levels are minimized and coastlines protected.
