Sea Level Rise Makes Miami Ground Zero

“New Orleans, the Netherlands—everybody understands putting in barriers, perimeter levees, pumps. Very few people understand: What do you do when the water’s coming up through the ground?

This excellent article in the New Yorker, describes how far we need to go to make Americans aware of the effects of climate change and sea level rise. Fort Lauderdale is growing exponentially faster than almost any other American city and yet it’s days are clearly numbered. Florida Governor Rick Scott will not allow State employees to speak about climate change, instead referring to it as “nuisance flooding.” But the message is clear: in my lifetime Miami and much of South Florida will likely be abandoned. No level of ingenuity or faith can stop the rising water. Wake up Florida.
