Some large cities will disappear by 2100



Elisabeth Eaves : writer
They are Ivanovo, Russia; Leipzig, Germany; Manchester and Liverpool, Britain; Detroit and San Francisco, the USA; Banjul, Gambia; Alexandria, Egypt; Tianjin, China; Jakarta, Indonesia; and Bangkok, Thailand and others. Factors as diverse as climate change and aging populations mean that even as the global urban population continues to grow, some cities are shrinking. It's not just small towns, although in wealthy nations, small communities may face the most extreme effects.
