Home and National Security

Rising ocean levels and increasing strength of tropical storms can cause floods that destroy homes and even make entire islands uninhabitable. One adaptation strategy is to move to higher elevations, if locally possible. Large changes in climate, such as droughts and heat waves, can also cause people to abandon their homes.
