In news that millions of Americans won't believe because it's in the New York Times, so-called "scientists" are warning that it's probably too late to stop rising sea levels from one day swamping major coastal cities:
A large section of the mighty West Antarctica ice sheet has begun falling apart and its continued melting now appears to be unstoppable, two groups of scientists reported on Monday. If the findings hold up, they suggest that the melting could destabilize neighboring parts of the ice sheet and a rise in sea level of 10 feet or more may be unavoidable in coming centuries.
It's all good news for Colorado Springs, Wichita, and other heartland cities that could emerge as America's newest world-class cities:
The effects will depend in part on how much money future governments spend to protect shorelines from a rising sea. Research published in 2012 found that a rise of less than four feet would inundate land on which some 3.7 million Americans live today. Miami, New Orleans, New York and Boston are all highly vulnerable.
