2. Miami is flooding. The water comes from 6 sides, most terrifyingly, from beneath the porous limestone on which the city is built. An almost certain five foot rise in sea levels would turn this booming city into a series of lakes, and eventually into Atlantis. New York’s lower Manhattan doesn’t stand much of a chance either. Brainstorming officials have considered injecting a fluid beneath the entire city, impregnating the porous ground beneath to prevent upwelling. This hypothetical solution is not only costly and drastic but questionable: you’d have to uproot the whole city, all of its structures and denizens, as well as prepare the other 5 sides of the city with seawalls.
