The rise in sea level caused by climate change is a problem for all coastal regions of the planet —including those of Brazil.
But in some places on the planet the threat is even more frightening: there are cities and entire countries that can disappear with the advance of the waters. They are island nations like Tuvalu. The capital of the Philippines, Manila, could sink in 30 years if the world does not reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
