How to Protect Yourself from Riots and Disasters in the Ocean
By David J. Pollack, CNNMoneyThe United States faces more severe climate-related threats than ever before, and this year could be even worse.
More storms are predicted, more sea-level rise is forecast, and more storms and floods are expected to hit the U.S. in the coming years.
So how do we protect ourselves from those threats?
There are some key recommendations for all of us who want to survive and thrive in the ocean, a report from the U:The Ocean Safety Equipment Safety Institute has put together a checklist for how to protect yourself from the worst storms and droughts in the world, as well as how to keep yourself safe when it’s time to evacuate.
Here are some of the top points: 1.
Wear sunscreen and long-sleeve shirts, and wear long sleeves.
Get rid of your old sunglasses, sunglasses that don’t filter, and sunglasses that aren’t wide-angle.
Wear a hat and sunglasses.
Keep your watertight container at least 2 feet (610 mm) deep.
Avoid using plastic bags or other disposable items.
Do not wash your clothes, shoes, and other personal items after washing.
Be prepared for your car to stop at a roadblock, as vehicles are more likely to stop than to proceed on a road, according to the U.:The U.N. agency that oversees marine safety, the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, says the U’s coastal areas are “high-risk.”
And the U has been on a steady decline in sea-surface temperatures, and sea-water levels, in recent years.
In 2017, sea-levels rose about two feet (60 cm) over the previous two years.
And the U.’s coastal areas experienced record heat waves in June and July, the U report says.
Sea level rise is already impacting people in the U, and the ocean is warming faster than the atmosphere.
It’s expected to continue to rise, and scientists expect it to reach as much as 2 feet by 2060.
Scientists are concerned about the impacts climate change will have on coastal communities, and their impact on the sea’s ability to absorb the effects of climate change.
Sea levels could rise as much up to 10 feet by 2100, the study says.
The U has the largest coastline in the United States, but it’s also one of the poorest, according a study released in August by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Sea level rises could be as much 13 feet (4 meters) by 2100.
It’s a situation that can only be solved by a combination of mitigation and adaptation.
That means people need to prepare for more flooding and other natural disasters, and by using their own devices to prepare themselves for these events.
Here’s a look at some of what the U recommends:1.
Learn to swim and to be able to swim well, and be able, if needed, to swim on your own.2.
Use a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen, and always wear a headlamp.3.
Avoid having your own phone in your bag or purse.4.
Wear long-distance running shoes.5.
Learn how to use your phone while on the water, or in the water.6.
Use your phone as a portable power source and keep it away from water.7.
Make sure you are always wearing sunscreen.8.
Make your own watertight containers.9.
Use personal electronics, such as portable digital cameras, a phone, and an internet-connected computer.10.
Know how to access emergency medical services.11.
Use the nearest shoreline shelter or water source.
