Climate change: Bangkok, Amsterdam and Melbourne ‘face greatest global warming risk’

Bangkok, Amsterdam and Melbourne stand to be the cities most hit by climate change by 2050, according to new analysis.

Rising sea levels caused by an increase in global temperatures will hit Thailand’s capital harder than any other, the Nestpick 2050 Climate Change City Index says.

The impact will be nearly 100 times worse than other coastal cities like Oslo and St Petersburg, it said.

Amsterdam and Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam face similar levels of impact, the study claims, which used a set of recognised coastal projections and climate risk analytics.
