Are New York City & Boston In Danger of Being Wiped Out By The Rising Ocean?

Perhaps the 2004 disaster film ‘The Day After Tomorrow’ wasn’t so far off. According to the US Geological Survey, the sea level along the east coast is rapidly rising.

It’s kind of a scary thought. The sea washing away a few major cities, or at the very least taking away some inches of beach. Odd as it is to talk about, it’s happening. According to a new study, New York City, Boston and Norfolk are seeing a rapid increase in sea level near them.

Basically, over time if this problem continues, beaches will erode and we’ll see more coastal flooding. After that, who knows. Probably a massive flood followed by another ice age. Fortunately for all of us, it’s a very slow process. We are not likely to see any devastating effects in our lifetime, but you never know.
