Climate expert John Kerry says that Manhattan will be underwater by the turn of the century. This is awesome news, because NASA’s James Hansen had said Manhattan would be underwater by 2008.
Sea level at Manhattan has been rising at the same rate of about one inch per decade since the Civil War.
Lower Manhattan street elevations range from about 10 feet to 50 feet above sea level, which means it will be more like 1,000 years before they are encroached. But when you are an idiot in charge of nuclear negotiations for the Messiah Obama, no math skills are required or desired.
