Cities and States – A Tale of Two Cities & Two States of Mind | EV & N 272 | Cambridge Community Television

YouTube Version

Sea level is rising faster than our capacity to think about it in coastal areas. From Miami to Boston, coastal cities are still foolishly expanding their waterfronts as desirable high-end real estate ventures, ignoring the well established facts about sea-level rise and the devastated future that these investments will leave as a legacy to future generations.

Adapt 2030
Published on Jun 13, 2016

Looking back through the last 2000 year we have good climatic data to show us when grand Solar Minimums occurred and how long they lasted. With new scientific data and observations of the Sun’s activity, we can see that we are headed back into another Grand Solar Minimum. Therefore we can look back in time and predict the future of Australia’s and our planets climate for the next 40 years.

Adapting Miami to Climate Change | Climate Central


Program Summary

On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina tore into Louisiana and Mississippi, causing such catastrophic destruction along the coast and in places like New Orleans that some cities and towns are still struggling to rebuild.

What some may forget is that four days earlier, Katrina made its first landfall in South Florida.

People there, though, haven’t forgotten. In fact, some in Florida who lived through Katrina now are preparing for climate change-related disasters they fear could be more damaging than a hurricane.

U.S. Cities We Could Lose to the Sea | Climate Central

By Climate Central

Historic carbon emissions have already locked in enough future sea level rise to submerge most of the homes in each of several hundred American towns and cities, according to Climate Central-led research published Monday in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The animated timeline on this page maps, year by year, how the total number of locked-in cities could climb to more than 1,500, if pollution continues unchecked through the end of the century. It also lays out an alternative timeline based on extreme carbon cuts, leading to fewer than 700 locked-in cities. You can watch threats unfold nationwide or for individual states, and track the potential fate of each municipality. Click on the “Start” button to begin.

Our research does not project, and this animation does not show, exactly when sea level will reach heights great enough to pose these dangers — likely centuries. Rather, our findings assess when enough carbon pollution will have accumulated, under each scenario, to lock in future sea level rise posing existential threats for each town or city — sea level rise that could submerge land where more than half of today’s population lives. This summary discusses the research and findings further.

What will the nation’s coastlines look like in the future, after global warming has had its inexorable, long-term effect on sea level rise? How many cities could be lost to permanent inundation? And which ones might we spare by cutting carbon emissions now? Explore the interactive.

High Water Line | Miami — Sea Level Rise in Metro Miami

Matthew Toro
Published on Oct 30, 2013

Prepared as part of the High Water Line | Miami project/movement, this video depicts sea level rise in greater metropolitan Miami at one-foot intervals, ranging from one foot to ten feet (in the introductory section at the beginning) and one foot to six feet (throughout the remaining sections). The raw sea level geospatial datasets were produced by Climate Central (http://www.climatecentral.org/) and shared with High Water Line | Miami.

NASA’s Earth Minute: Sea Level Rise

NASA Climate Change
Published on Aug 26, 2015

For over 20 years NASA has been tracking the global surface topography of the ocean in order to understand the important role it plays in our daily lives. Climate change is causing our ocean to warm and glaciers to melt, resulting in sea level rise. Since 1880, the global sea level has risen 8 inches; by 2100, it is projected to rise another 1 to 4 feet. :::

Why you can’t ignore climate change…

Driven by a sense of self-preservation to protect ourselves and our families by any means necessary, the human instinct to survive is our most powerful characteristic. Climate change may sound abstract and distant, yet it is inherently connected to today’s headlines, beyond extreme weather events: Health, Economy, National Security, and Immigration. When you widen and focus the lens, the causality is difficult to ignore. Climate change is at the root of many issues that dominate our lives physically, financially, and culturally.

Climate change effects are painfully felt when intense rainstorms, severe droughts, powerful hurricanes, extreme heat waves, Arctic chills, glacial melting, increased wildfires, and sea level rise disrupt our lives. Rising sea levels are causing sunny day flooding, destroying coastal areas and precious natural spaces, and in some cases, swallowing and displacing entire islands. The most vulnerable – the elderly, women, children, minorities, and the poor – are disproportionately affected by these impacts. Wildlife populations are also declining at an alarming rate as Earth undergoes what has been called the Sixth Mass Extinction. No one is immune to climate change.

When will climate change affect you?

Climate change affects everyone.

When the intensity and frequency of a weather event such as a major hurricane wreaks havoc on an island forcing 100,000’s of people to flee to the mainland for safety, this weather headline becomes a national security, immigration, economic and humanitarian issue.

When heat waves ignite wildfires and cause droughts, our fresh water supply and crop production are jeopardized becoming a public safety, economic, and health issue.

When increased precipitation and temperatures expand the range of vector-borne diseases such as Zika, the economy and our health are impacted.

When sea level rises, the economy, immigration, homeland security, and health suffer.

We must transition to renewable energies, improve natural and urban land use, and shift our consumption habits. The generations that follow are counting on you.
