The accumulation of greenhouse emissions in the atmosphere has caused an increase in global temperatures, causing deterioration to the polar caps, as well as the expansion of saltwater molecules which end up occupying more space. As a result, the sea level rises and the wave range breaks closer to coastal areas
The investment would give four times the return on investment, it said
