Question:


Sea level is a term describing the altitude of the water at sea

Global warming due to human activity has countless examples all over the world.

Global warming is basically the constant rise of the world average temperature in time.

The rise of the world temperatures causes processes which give rise to the sea level.

Sea level rise causes real flooding threat to populations which live near the shore and with low altitude.

Implications of sea level rise in Israel

.Damage to the economy

Increase in flood frequency.

Salinization of water sources.

Increase in frequency of coastal cliff collapse.

Answer the question according to the Graph:


As a successful business person you want to invest a huge amount of money to buy offices in T.L.V. (sea level).
Assuming that the building has 10 floors (25 meters), which floors should you be looking for if you want to be safe from waves (up to 3 meters) even 100 years from now


in the following link

you can locate this place and find the height above sea level

I can choose just 3 floors (The last three floors)for spreading of my son company if I want to be safe.
I can choose 10 floors for spreading of my son company if I want to be safe, I find this city is higher than the sea level.
I can choose only one floor (10th floor) for spreading of my son company ifI want to be safe, this city can float in water.
This building has 10 floors, I can choose 8 floors (3-10) for spreading of my son company ifI want to be safe.

The question is related to the Change Projects and includes pictures and animation.

I think it  will be good to add the scientific explanation. The sentence "The rise of the world temperatures causes processes which give rise to the sea level."  is very general , I would add a brief explanation of the factors that increase the sea level (as the temperature, volume of glaciers).

The information points are related to the geographic location (TLV), however the question is not entirely clear to me  (which building you mean?).  
The Seychelles information point is interesting and relevant.

I also offer to add to the question the link to the Interactive  System of visualization of flooding at the coasts of Israel, that I added to the point in Acre.

The topic is very interesting and thought provoking . it is clear and straight forward . the video is connected to the subject given .
However, I would prefer to include more scientific information about the subject . for example how the Global Warming affect the sea level rise .
although the video is clear , I would prefer a more detailed and comprehensive video .

Sea level rise risk-Economic impact
Because of the importance of the issue and to illustrate the magnitude of the I prefer to add an economic aspect :
Sea level rise will cost the world a trillion dollars in 2050
A comprehensive study of the World Bank and the OECD predicts that the price paid by coastal cities around the world to flooding will increase ninefold in four decades . The message : to reduce future damages , and fast . As usual third world is the focus of the danger , but also Tel Aviv

Were very interested and very important extra-wide population countries and cities on the seashore , the answer to the question can be based on the scientific fact that since 1900, sea levels are rising in - 3-1 mm per year , when satellite measurements in 1992 indicate an increase of 3 from " from year .
I would add another explanation for the warming of the planet , the volume of additional water into the sea because Htmssot glaciers , explanations Allmh warming and offers solutions to reduce global warming.
Video simulation that shows the relationship between air pollution , industrial , transportation , and sea level rise

Explain the choice of the point:
The average height of the Mediterranean sea in Israel established by the British Mandate in 1920 with a measuring device called Mraogrf (Mareographe) were carried out along the Mediterranean, especially in ports, thousands of measurements for a whole year every day and think the average height measurement in each region. Based on these measurements, it was decided sea level (level zero) is in the port of Jaffa, an excellent zero point of this place and can see Simone on the beach in Jaffa. Until now, all the Zionist state of Israel great height in relation to this point,
And on this basis I chose the closest measurement point where I live under constant surveillance and can be relied upon to draw conclusions about the future, for example, a change of residence

Economic view
Because of the importance of the issue and to illustrate the magnitude of the I prefer to add an economic aspect :
