NYC vs Climate Change – the city has dramatic plans for the disappearing coastlines

The changing climate won’t just impact the weather. With the warmer temperatures, the world is going to be looking at many disappearing coastlines, many of which people, you know, live along. Rather than just waiting for everything to sink, New York City is looking at a radical plan to prepare for it and it may outline how the rest of the world handles the same problems.

Many parts of the city that will be effected by rising waters are parts that are currently in use, including some that house the city’s water and power plants. This is not great news for people who live there. Also some of the people who live there will be underwater too. The city has plans to fortify some parts and move others.

Plans include large scale buyouts for areas that will not be habitable. There also plans to reroute current infrastructure and leave parts of the coast to the water. Of course, these are just plans and they will need to carried out over a number of years.
