This is what sea level rise will do to coastal cities
Sea level rise is already redrawing coastlines around the world. What happens when the coast retreats through a major city? We look at how the world map will change in the year 2100, and what coastal cities can do to defend themselves. Correction: An early version of this video suggested that researchers expect to see four feet of sea level rise by the end of the century. While researchers do expect to see at least that level of sea level rise in the future, the exact timing is difficult to project. We regret the error.

Sea level rise is so much more than melting ice
While researching climate change, we heard something confusing: the sea level in New York City is rising about one and a half times faster than the global average. We couldn’t figure out what that meant. Isn’t the sea level...flat? So we called up an expert and went down the rabbit hole. And, we did our best to visualize her truly bizarre answers with animations, dioramas, and a lot of melting ice.

Shouldn't sea levels have risen by now?
Try Dashlane here: http://dashlane.com/simonclark Get 10% off now with my promo code: simonclark ! In this video I answer the question: 'isn't climate change supposed to have risen sea levels by now?' by looking at one dataset in some detail, and reviewing the scientific literature. Also: Kevin Costner's Waterworld. My video on stopping climate change: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkbuV_a-rvs This video was light on the potential impacts of sea level rise. I wanted to focus specifically on the perception that sea levels have not changed, and spend time on the data. If you’re interested in the potential impacts then https://www.ipcc.ch/site/assets/uploads/2018/02/ar5_wgII_spm_en.pdf is a must read. Anthropogenic climate change (AGW) is a fickle bit of science, and like much of environmental science sometimes changes on (relatively) long timescales and global extent can hide in plain sight. That seems to be the case with sea level rise. The data is very clear: sea levels have been rising faster and faster over the past century, and this is not caused by natural variability. Humanity's carbon emissions are radiatively forcing the planet, causing net warming and so thermal expansion of the oceans and melting of ice sheets. It appears that this is going to become more and more painfully obvious as this century wears on, and so the sooner we take action the better.

Images Show U.S. Cities Submerged After 25 Feet Of Sea Level Rise
More information about artist - http://www.NickolayLamm.com Nickolay Lamm has released simulated images of how parts of Washington, D.C., Miami, and New York City would look if sea levels rose by 25 additional feet - a level deemed possible in the next centuries if current trends continue. Sea levels are probably rising faster now than they ever have in the past 3,000 years, say scientists, and the trend is expected to continue.  In order to help people visual this problem, Nickolay Lamm with the website StorageFront.com created simulated images of how certain U.S. cities and landmarks would look with an additional 25 feet of sea level rise. The area around the National Mall in Washington, D.C., which includes the Smithsonian and other national museums, would be submerged, as would the entire base of the Jefferson Memorial.  Meanwhile, Miami’s South Beach would disappear almost completely, with the trunks of numerous palm trees under water.  To the north, the amount of exposed land in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Jersey City would shrink significantly, and the grassy park below the Statue of Liberty would be gone.  Lamm created these simulated maps and images based on data from Climate Central.  He estimates that sea levels will likely rise by 5 feet in the next 100 to 300 years, 12 feet by around 2300, and 25 feet in the next centuries.

Adapting Coastal Communities to Sea-Level Rise: Why Isn't Anybody Doing Anything?
More than two years have passed since the City of Satellite Beach (Florida) accepted a report summarizing the results of a project commissioned to assess its vulnerability to sea-level rise. Commensurate with project completion, the City's Comprehensive Planning Advisory Board then approved a series of updates and revisions to its Comprehensive Plan. The Advisory Board had worked closely with the project team throughout the duration of the investigation to ensure their comprehension of the study and its results. If approved the City Council, their recommendations would provide a legal basis for implementing an adaptive management plan designed to mitigate the City's vulnerability to sea level rise. Yet to date no action has been taken. What happened? We review the results of the City's vulnerability assessment and then discuss why the City Council, like many other governing boards around the US and abroad, do not implement adaptive management strategies recommended by their own consulting experts, citizen advisory committees, or professional staff. We conclude by suggesting what could be done to overcome this 'business as usual' response.

Kiribati: a drowning paradise in the South Pacific | DW Documentary
Climate change and rising sea levels mean the island nation of Kiribati in the South Pacific is at risk of disappearing into the sea. But the island’s inhabitants aren’t giving up. They are doing what they can to save their island from inundation. Can COP23 help make a difference? UN estimates indicate that Kiribati could disappear in just 30 or 40 years. That’s because the average elevation is less than two meters above sea level. And some of the knock-on effects of climate change have made the situation more difficult. Kiribati can hardly be surpassed in terms of charm and natural beauty. There are 33 atolls and one reef island – spread out over an area of 3.5 million square kilometers. All have white, sandy beaches and blue lagoons. Kiribati is the world’s largest state that consists exclusively of atolls. A local resident named Kaboua points to the empty, barren land around him and says, "There used to be a large village here with 70 families." But these days, this land is only accessible at low tide. At high tide, it's all under water. Kaboua says that sea levels are rising all the time, and swallowing up the land. That’s why many people here build walls made of stone and driftwood, or sand or rubbish. But these barriers won't stand up to the increasing number of storm surges. Others are trying to protect against coastal erosion by planting mangrove shrubs or small trees. But another local resident, Vasiti Tebamare, remains optimistic. She works for KiriCAN, an environmental organization. Vasiti says: "The industrialized countries -- the United States, China, and Europe -- use fossil fuels for their own ends. But what about us?" Kiribati's government has even bought land on an island in Fiji, so it can evacuate its people in an emergency. But Vasiti and most of the other residents don't want to leave. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

New York City sea level rise 1900-2017
This video visualizes the effects of global warming. The US east coast is one of the most threatened sea level rise hotspots in the world. 117 years of sea level rise around the New York City was compressed into one minute in order to better demonstrate the devastating changes we are experiencing. The data is from the Battery tide gauge in New York, converted to pixel values and rendered for each month. Source: https://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/sltrends/sltrends_station.shtml?stnid=8518750 During this time period the sea level at Battery has risen about 33 centimeters (13 inches, 2.84mm*117). This translates to about two and a half pixels in the image. The graphics calculation is only approximately valid near the statue - any 3D effect wasn't factored in. NOAA has removed seasonal fluctuations from the data. Scientists are currently debating whether or not an acceleration or perhaps deceleration in sea level rise is detectable (see for example: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4978990/ , http://www.nature.com/articles/ncomms4635).

Brooklyn, New York City sea level rise 1900-2017
This video visualizes the effects of global warming. The US east coast is one of the most threatened sea level rise hotspots in the world. 117 years of sea level rise around the New York City was compressed into one minute in order to better demonstrate the devastating changes we are experiencing. The data is from the Battery tide gauge in New York, converted to pixel values and rendered for each month. The photo location is near the Brooklyn Bridge. Source: https://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/sltrends/sltrends_station.shtml?stnid=8518750 During this time period the sea level at Battery has risen about 33 centimeters (13 inches, 2.84mm*117). This translates to about 14 pixels in the image. The graphics calculation is only approximately valid near the people in the center - any 3D effect wasn't factored in. NOAA has removed seasonal fluctuations from the data. In addition a 12 month moving average was applied to smooth out some of the oscillations. Scientists are currently debating whether or not an acceleration or perhaps deceleration in sea level rise is detectable (see for example: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4978990/ , http://www.nature.com/articles/ncomms4635).

Sea Level Rise Will Claim Statue of Liberty
A new study says that the rising sea levels caused by climate change will eventually submerge the Statue of Liberty. A new study says that the rising sea levels caused by climate change will eventually submerge the Statue of Liberty. Also claimed will be about a fifth of the 720 Unesco World Heritage sites. Landmarks considered particularly vulnerable are the tower of Pisa, the Sydney Opera House, and Westminster Abbey. Entire historical cities are at risk as well, and those named most likely to be covered by water include St. Petersburg, Russia and the Italian city of Naples. The loss of the cities and landmarks will take about 2 thousand years, but signs of their disappearance will probably be witnessed in this century. In some cases it's because sea level rises in the areas are already accelerating. In others, it's due to the fact that the land itself is low lying. The researchers calculations are based on a continued trend of global warming. They emphasize that even if the atmospheric temperature increase stops, its effects will continue to be felt as the ocean's absorption of heat and melting of ice will go on for some time after. Recommended is that flood-defense actions be put in place sooner rather than later.

Sea levels could rise three feet by 2100, study projects
Antarctica is losing ice three times faster than it was in 2007 as greenhouse gas emissions by human activity contribute to global warming. A study in Nature says that sea levels could rise between three and six feet by 2100, with Antarctica contributing at least six inches if its ice melt continues at the current rate. Dr. Benjamin Strauss, president and CEO of Climate Central, joins Hari Sreenivasan.

Sea level rise - fact & fiction: John Englander at TEDxBocaRaton
Sea level is rising for the first time in thousands of years. Oceanographer John Englander, author of "High Tide On Main Street" explains why it is unstoppable, regardless of efforts to be 'green' and sustainable. Using powerful images, he encourages us to embrace the new reality that the shoreline is moving, that we begin to adapt, while we also try to slow the warming. It is a positive message, "a glass half full, rather than half empty" -- though the glass will get higher each decade. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Coastal Resilience Network Webinar: Imperial Beach Sea Level Rise Planning
The City of Imperial Beach, California faces coastal erosion and coastal flooding hazards from three sides. This presentation will describe the City’s approach to sea level rise planning and results of the coastal hazard vulnerabilities and economic impact assessment from coastal hazards. Adaptation strategies, including a living shoreline approach, were evaluated using a holistic approach linking economic tradeoffs to physical responses. This science-based approach to adaptation planning highlights the cost effectiveness of various approaches through time. As the City moves forward to identify and implement short term adaptation plans to existing hazards, the frequency and duration of future hazards is being considered in the development of updated land use policies. Lessons learned from the project, stakeholder process, and adaptation planning as well as future work needs and approaches will be shared so that other communities can benefit. Speakers: Mayor Serge Dedina, Dr. David Revell, Dr. Phil King, and Chris Helmer
