Rising seas threaten early end for sinking village in Philippines
The coastal village of Sitio Pariahan is sinking about 1.5 inches every year, owing largely to land subsidence from the population's overuse of groundwater, according to experts. Now rising sea levels caused by global warming could soon make this village unliveable, a problem faced by other countries in Asia, where the poorest communities are worst hit.
