Hundreds of Thousands in Bay Area Will be Displaced by Sea Level Rise
A new study predicts a grim future for people living in low-lying coastal areas of the Bay Area and across the nation as sea levels rise. By the end of this century, researchers predict 13.1 million people could be displaced by rising waters. The study was done at the University of Georgia and published online in the journal Nature Climate Change. It is the first to couple the risk of sea level rise (SLR) with projected population growth, and warns that preventative strategies that don’t take both into account, will fail.
