New York might disappear in a few years, because of water. We are not talking about the script of a apocalyptic movie. We are referring to the conclusion of a Government report about climatic changes. The New York City Hall will organize debates about these forecasts.
Because of the increase of the planetary ocean level, big storms ( Irene, for example ) can cover one third of the streets of New York.
Access to Manhattan might be blocked in less than one hour. Many of the residential areas of the cities and areas from lower Manhattan might become uninhabitable with the sea level increase.
The effects caused by the increase of sea level, as well as those by climatic changes, will probably be felt in the next decade.
