8. Populations living at sea level

A. Water is possibly the most important thing for life on planet Earth. But even though we cannot Sun Without water, it also creates many problems, and the global rise in sea levels is a danger to milb of people. About 70% of the earth is covered by water and many cities are built close to coastal am

B. Although sea levels are rising at an increasing rate, there is no clear agreement as to what is causirJ Many scientists believe that global warming, caused by human activity, has contributed to it. Otl Argue that it is the result of natural climate change and the Earth often goes through patterns of Ni And falling sea levels.

C. Whatever causes rising sea levels, the signs are clear. It appears that sea levels began to rise in the I Century and these increases have more than doubled in the 20th century. There is plenty of evide for these changes, from scientific sources such as geological data and record keeping.

D. There is plenty of evidence for dramatic changes in sea levels in the past. For instance, geological d shows that in the last ice age, 18,000 years ago, sea levels were around 120 metres lower than theyj today. Further back in the past, there is evidence that sea levels were higher. So fluctuations in I Levels have occurred at various points in history.

E. The fact that rising sea levels may be a natural phenomenon wont be much consolation to people Ihj In coastal areas facing the dangers of flooding. Large cities such as London and New York Alrea Use flood barriers. However, these cities will need much greater flood defences in the future. 1 Netherlands, a country with 25% of its land below sea level, will also need to increase its sea defene

R It is estimated that many islands could become uninhabitable. Even quite small rises in sea level fl have a devastating effect on communities. Flooding can cause destruction of property and crops, fl erosion and poor quality drinking water. Worldwide, about 634 million people live in coastal areas a two thirds of the worlds largest major cities are in low-lying areas.

G. People who don’t live close to coastal areas would be seriously affected by the destruction of Coafl Communities. Firstly, it would mean that large numbers of climate refugees would have to move higher ground. The damage to agriculture and fresh water supplies could result in widespread Famii All in all, rising sea levels could be very serious for the entire population of the world.

Магу Shelley, the wife of the well-known English poet Percy Shelley, was also a famous writer. She is best known for her novel Frankenstein, one of the worlds greatest horror stories. Apart from Frankenstein, Mary wrote many other novels and short stories, as well as editing her husband s works after his death.

Mary was born in London in 1797. Her father was a political philosopher. Her mother was a philosopher and early feminist. Unfortunately, Mary’s mother died eleven days after her daughter’s birth. Mary was brought up by her father and, when her father later remarried, her stepmother.

Mary was only 16 years old when she fell in love with the young poet Percy Shelley. It caused a scandal in English society when they ran away together. Mary’s relations with her own family were very difficult because of her relationship with Percy. Even more severely, his family never forgave them or made peace with them. Even after Percy’s death, his father refused to meet Mary for the rest of his life.

In 1816, the Shelleys spent the summer months by Lake Geneva in Switzerland, where they were joined by other friends, including the poet Lord Byron. As it was a cold, wet summer, the party of friends would often sit in Byron’s villa, talking late into the night by the light of a warm log fire. One night, someone suggested that everyone should come up with a ghost story to entertain them. Only the 19-year-old Mary Shelley managed to produce a horror story. This became the much-loved novel Frankenstein.

Mary Shelley suffered many misfortunes in her life. She had four children, but only one son, named after his father, survived into adulthood. Mary mourned the loss of her other children her whole life. Then, in 1822, while the Shelleys were living abroad in Italy, Percy drowned in a boating accident, at the age of 29. Mary was a widow at 25 years of age. She never remarried.

After the death of her husband, Mary returned to England with her young son. Her husband’s family offered a very small amount of financial help, so Mary had to become a full-time writer to support herself and her son. It was only after the death of Percy’s father that she was finally free from financial difficulties.

Mary Shelley died at the age of 53, probably from a brain tumour, although historians are not completely sure. She is buried alongside her mother and father in a churchyard in Bournemouth, Dorset. Although her husband was buried in a cemetery in Rome, his heart was removed and is buried with his wife in the grave in Bournemouth.

Many of Mary Shelley’s books were horror stories.
