Kerry will be vulnerable to ever rising sea levels and wetter winters in the coming years. This is according to Dr John Sweeney lecturer in geography at NUI Maynooth. Sea levels are expected to rise by at least 40 cm by the year 2080, yet this fact seems to have little impact on planning for housing, transport or other essential services according to Dr Sweeney.He predicts that the west of the country will see increased flooding while the east could expect to see drier winters. Dr Sweeney is also critical of the national climate change strategy saying many of the original features have been abandoned or neglected.
