Miami Will Drown

In the July 28-August 30, 2007 issue of New Scientist magazine, NASA physicist James Hansen says that, due to global warming, the oceans will rise so high in the next 100 years that Miami, Florida will be one of the major cities that drowns: it will be underwater. The article contains a "before" photograph and a computer-generated "after" image of the state which reveal that by 2107, Florida will be a small "stub," compared to its land mass today.

Hansen also asserts that in the last few years, researchers?even NASA scientists like himself?who have warned about the effects of global warming have found it harder to get their OTHER research projects funded (even though these projects have not been about climate change) probably because their views about global warming are politically unpopular with the current administration.
