New York, Boston "Directly in Path" of Sea Level Rise(You can't see me...but I'm laughing) I find this amusing, because it would seem that those most apt to believe in the nonsense of "Global Warming" and "model predicted sea rise" couldn't wait to put themselves into the role of victim. I really hate to burst their little "feel good" and "woe is me" bubbles...but here's the truth:

By 2100 visitors to Boston could be parking their boats, not their cars, in Harvard Yard.
Major cities in the northeastern U.S. and eastern Canada "are directly in the path of the greatest rise" in sea level if Greenland continues to melt due to global warming, a new study says.
Scientists believe that the influx of fresh water from the disintegrating ice sheets will disrupt a circulation pattern in the Atlantic Ocean, causing seas to expand.
The new projections call for an extra 4 to 12 inches (10.2 to 30.5 centimeters) on top of the rise of 8 inches (20.3 centimeters) previously estimated in the journal Nature Geoscience in March.
That previous study found that, if global warming continues, sea levels around New York City would rise by twice as much as in other parts of the United States within this century.
