‘Mass exodus on a biblical scale’: UN warns New York, London, Shanghai to be impacted by rising sea levels

I have brought up the example many times and will do so again. According to Hansen, the New York West Side Highway should be underwater since 2006. Thats 17 years of a little more than wet feet in Manhattan. But if you go down to West Side Highway, you will not only see that it’s perfectly dry but also that there is a footway thats even a smidgen lower than the driveway and thats dry too. Take a look around Pier 25 and you will see that on average that the surface of the water is about one meter from the footway. Thats my guess – replace it with measured data if you like. My question now is – where the hell is this sea level rise?
