Losing Atolls

Most atolls will become uninhabitable starting from 2030-2060 due to sea-level rise.  The waves will not only cause worse structural damage but also wipe out supplies of fresh water.

If you live in areas threatened by rising waters, develop an exit plan.  It will be easier to move the sooner you do it, because eventually people will stop buying property there and you won't be able to cash out, so you'd have to leave with no return for starting anew elsewhere.
