Sea Levels Rise in Boston

Leave a comment

I have been reading in a new book, which I will review soon, about sea levels rising as a consequence of global warming.  A friend of mine found this article.  Don’t forget to click on the left to see the pictures change as sea levels rise.  It may seem like the 25 feet rise won’t happen for so long that it isn’t even worth thinking about.  Think about how many people will be displaced by 5 feet in Back Bay, and remember that Boston has resources and wealth to deal with it.  There are many countries in the South Pacific that will have much more significant flooding and will not have a wealthy nation helping the people who are displaced.
