Scientists say that half of the world's sandy beached are at risk of disappearing by the end of the century if climate changes continues unchecked. Researchers at the European Union's Joint Research Center in Ispra, Italy, used satellite images to track the way beaches changed over the past 30 years and project how global warming might affect them in the future.
