Australia is a continent by itself albeit the smallest one yet
“Eighty percent of Australians live within 80 miles of the sea; 50 percent of the country’s houses sit less than 8 miles from a beach” [source].
Isn’t that amazing? People definitely love living near the sea. The United States coastlines also house the majority of the country’s population; so does India and China. It definitely makes you think of the impact global warming will have on the ensuing rise in sea levels.
