The global warming we are experiencing her days are numbered, because in this world is threatening New York so that the batteries are placed Yanque and save the planet. It is expected that sea level on the east coast of the United States will grow at an twice the pace than usual during this century, what would cause New York was at risk of suffering severe hurricanes or winter storms.
And it seems not unlikely, as experts, led by Jianjun Yin, say there are more than 90% chance of actually the growth rate of sea level rise. All this would cause thermal expansion and the retarder of the North Atlantic circulation due to warming of the surface.
"The northeast coast of the United States is among the most vulnerable in the face of future changes in sea level and ocean circulation, especially considering the population density that supports and potential economic consequences of these changes. Cities and the most popular and economic centers are located along this coast. "Except Los Angeles, of course.
Sea level up to New York could rise 20 centimeters. Considering that most of the New York metropolitan region is less than 5 meters and the lower parts of Manhattan are only five feet above the level the sea, this increase could have disastrous consequences for this region, especially if there is a hurricane.
This may call into question the widespread belief that Florida and Western Europe are the most vulnerable with respect to the growth of sea level.
