Some in just a few years.
And during hurricane season, tidal surge makes it even worse.

And that's just one example. This is a huge issue.

This is about climate change, pollution, heat days, drought, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc.
Pick a state or put in a zip code.
Details/links are on the right, once you pick the location.
(Kind of a "survivalist" map-if you will. The best places to survive it.)

Some places look almost unlivable in the coming years but I guess people won't pay enough attention until it happens.

Another flood map, bit less US centric than the one posted above, but does much the same thing.
These are great tools to help show people the dangers we're facing. Though I wonder how many will look at just their homes and see they're ok, leave it at that.

There was a news report about a month ago about one city near San Francisco. I forget which. They are already making up plans to move the community back. They will lose the main road that lines the coast then turns into their residential areas first. Without the road, they'll have difficulty traveling outside their area. The mayor has been trying to impress on the residents that they have no choice. The water will rise and they will be trapped.
You know, in California we have those two nuclear plants. I think both are right on the coast. I wonder if they've thought about how they will be affected. Probably not.

These pieces of information inspire me to do all I can to care for the environment and help others see the importance of this as well.

two young bullies fighting it out in the schoolyard
they're so distracted, they don't notice the school burning down behind them.
Easy is not the word I would use for reducing emissions across the globe, but it could be done and quickly,
IF (big if)
we (humans) had the focus.
Consider election spending by billionaires, for instance. Instead of tearing down opponents of one party,
spending that money on an effective cleaning filter system for coal-
or donating solar panels for every home in America.
How many millions were spent (wasted) on the Wisconsin election alone?
Beef and pigs are not going to be eliminated from our diets anytime soon, so why not grow the correct crops
that don't cause these animals to emit gases every 40 seconds vs feeding them corn all day long.
We're still fighting over a "transportation bill"-more highways. Hello? We need fast, efficient mass transit.
Texas doesn't even want to teach sex education-which has a staggeringly high teenage birth rate=adding
When the rising tide starts to envelope wall street in NYC-they'll pay attention-but it'll be too late by then.

Google "building sea walls" and there are several sites already-set up/ how-to's.
The small island nation of Kiribati is made up of 33 small atolls, none of which is more than 6.5 feet above the South Pacific.
From this story
How long can they last?
And an interesting how-to (or how not to)
regarding beach erosion, sea walls, and other problem solvers that have failed.
