More than 1,700 American cities and towns including Boston, New York, and Miami will have significant populations living below the high-water mark by the end of this century, a new climate change study has found.
Those 1,700 towns are locked into a watery future by greenhouse gas emissions already built up in the atmosphere, the analysis published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on Monday found. For nearly 80 of those cities, the watery future would come much sooner, within the next decade.
"Even if we could just stop global emissions tomorrow on a dime, Fort Lauderdale, Miami Gardens, Hoboken, New Jersey will be under sea level," said Benjamin Strauss, a researcher at Climate Central, and author of the paper. But dramatic cuts in emissions much greater than Barack Obama and other world leaders have so far agreed could save nearly 1,000 of those towns, by averting the sea-level rise, the study fund.

Boston is on Landfill. So this will be a correction.
They said Greenland would start melting and it has. Does not mean it is caused by man, but it is happening.
Last year I lost my house in NY to perhaps the worst hurricane in a very long time. Wish they had told me that was coming.
Can we hurry it along. I’ll burn a tire tonight if needed.
Won’t this help clean up corruption ?
Wishing for a blight where Americans live?
Well, if we really believed this crap, NYC and the other coastal cities would be 50 feet under water already according to the predictions of the “Climate Experts and their Climate Models” beginning back in the 1990s!!!!!!
I am. Call it the karma for having inflicted obamanation on us.
Where's the problem. They say the people will be living, not that they died. It doesn't say they had to move or they want to move or that anyone wants them to move.
Still beating a dead donkey.....
And I doubt if there will be "significant populations living below the high-water mark".
Why does ice float?
What other observations or facts are known?
Because ice floats, we can infer that ice must be less dense than water.
Soo if it gets warm and ice melts there will be less ocean levels and Miami NYC Boston loose beach front.
I am not wishing for anything... I was using rhetoric to make a point. There is no globull warming and I doubt that we will go into another Ice Age so nothing will happen... not that the evil that is so dominate in large cities doesn’t deserve such reckoning. That will come from GOD if it ever comes... not from me or from any other man.
Maybe they wont move and die, who would miss Miami NYC and Boston.
And the only way to stop it is to funnel more money into the pockets of these "researchers".
a giant white wall of ice creeping towards you...
Quincy, IL just set a record low temperature yesterday, so I wouldn’t worry about global warming
Ice mixes well with scotch!
Urban areas under water?
Well, there goes my theory that they would all burn to the ground once austerity measures made EBT cards useless pieces of plastic.
