Preparing a home for climate change
How will climate change affect you? Well, if you are a homeowner in Sweden and are worried about how higher sea-levels and more rainfall could affect your home, a new Swedish website hopes to provide the answers, and suggest how to reduce the risks.
Radio Sweden interviewed Erik Glaas from Linköping University, who has worked on the project.
"It's quite abstract with climate change and what it might entail, so here we have tried to make it intuitive and quite fast to find that information," says Glaas, who explains that the website is geared to help homeowners figure out how to deal with climate changes where they live for the next 40 to 60 years.
