New York will endure catastrophic flooding from storms such as Superstorm Sandy every two years by the end of the century because of the impact of climate change, according to experts.
Superstorm Sandy was caused by a tropical storm colliding with a very cold air mass from the Arctic. Apparently they are expecting global cooling to dominate for the rest of the century.
Floods and other “extreme climate events” caused by rising sea levels are forecast to become a particular problem on America’s east coast, where waters are rising up to four times faster than the global average.
Except for minor localized short term fluctuations, ocean waters can’t rise any faster at one place than they do anywhere else. All of the oceans are connected. Perhaps they hope to stop post-glacial rebound through a carbon tax?
