As global warming melts glaciers at both poles and sea levels rise, maps all over the world will have to be redrawn. Coastal towns in Florida may disappear and so may Boston and New Orleans. In other parts of the world, drought is causing rivers to dry up. For instance, the Dead Sea is 82 feet lower than it was half a century ago, and may not appear on future maps at all.
In ABC News, Clayton Sandell quotes global warming activist Edward Mazria as saying, “We’re not talking about South Sea islands and Bangladesh here. We’re talking about the US being physically under siege with a very small increment of sea level rise.”
