can be perfectly observed as a problem, even for those ignoring the anthropogenic influence on the earth's climate. The rise of the waters is a phenomenon that has been ongoing for thousands of years.

Rapidly expanding establishments at the shoreline is just another example when relative short-term human actions bear great risks on the geological long-term scale.

In an environment where exposure to risks is more frequent, people will adapt to that risk. This explains why Amsterdam is mentioned in the study as a city with an extremely high exposure to flooding, but a really low estimate of estimated losses.
