Cities Adaptations to Sea Level Rise: Kristina Hill
 
05:40
Since we don’t yet know how fast and how high sea levels are going to rise, Berkeley urban designer Kristina Hill stresses that our strategies must be ready and be adaptive as conditions change. Rising seas pose multiple dangers. Groundwater rises on top of sea level causing inland flooding. What can we do to prepare? A fundamental principle of landscape architecture -- "dig a hole, make a mound” -- offers a time-tested strategy, she argues. As groundwater levels rise, the “holes,” i.e. ponds and canal systems, can store excess water. They contain and re-direct floods, helping us live with water like the Dutch. The earth from the ponds can be used to build levees called superdikes, with an extra-wide wetland edge on the Bay side. Floating housing on the ponds would serve to protect from both flood and earthquake damage. This strategy would solve both housing needs and environmental concerns, aligning interests that are often opposed while adapting to a changing climate.

Miami's Real Estate Market is Benefiting from Rising Sea Levels (HBO)
 
04:21
The latest reports from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predict that sea levels are likely to rise almost three feet by the end of the century. And in South Florida, sea level rise and climate change are already having an effect on roads and drinking water. But looking at Miami Beach’s real estate market, you wouldn’t know that the city is potentially facing a half a trillion dollars in flood damage. Shane Smith met with two of Miami beach’s top real estate brokers, Jill Hertzberg and Jill Eber, to find out what’s protecting the market. He also speaks with an insurance expert from Wharton who explains how the city’s public funds come predominantly from real estate taxes — meaning that putting more property at risk is also the very thing helping Miami deal with rising seas.

Kiribati: a drowning paradise in the South Pacific | DW Documentary
 
42:51
Climate change and rising sea levels mean the island nation of Kiribati in the South Pacific is at risk of disappearing into the sea. But the island’s inhabitants aren’t giving up. They are doing what they can to save their island from inundation. Can COP23 help make a difference? UN estimates indicate that Kiribati could disappear in just 30 or 40 years. That’s because the average elevation is less than two meters above sea level. And some of the knock-on effects of climate change have made the situation more difficult. Kiribati can hardly be surpassed in terms of charm and natural beauty. There are 33 atolls and one reef island – spread out over an area of 3.5 million square kilometers. All have white, sandy beaches and blue lagoons. Kiribati is the world’s largest state that consists exclusively of atolls. A local resident named Kaboua points to the empty, barren land around him and says, "There used to be a large village here with 70 families." But these days, this land is only accessible at low tide. At high tide, it's all under water. Kaboua says that sea levels are rising all the time, and swallowing up the land. That’s why many people here build walls made of stone and driftwood, or sand or rubbish. But these barriers won't stand up to the increasing number of storm surges. Others are trying to protect against coastal erosion by planting mangrove shrubs or small trees. But another local resident, Vasiti Tebamare, remains optimistic. She works for KiriCAN, an environmental organization. Vasiti says: "The industrialized countries -- the United States, China, and Europe -- use fossil fuels for their own ends. But what about us?" Kiribati's government has even bought land on an island in Fiji, so it can evacuate its people in an emergency. But Vasiti and most of the other residents don't want to leave. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

How Earth Would Look If All The Ice Melted

We learned last year that many of the effects of climate change are irreversible. Sea levels have been rising at a greater rate year after year, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimates they could rise by another meter or more by the end of this century. As National Geographic showed us in 2013, sea levels would rise by 216 feet if all the land ice on the planet were to melt. This would dramatically reshape the continents and drown many of the world's major cities.

As if the threat of much of the eastern seaboard ending up under water isn't bad enough, a new study shows that the situation is even worse than previously thought. While the specific dates for the complete engulfment aren't predicted, the report says that the point of no return is quickly approaching for around 1400 coastal cities and towns. That point is declared when areas have 50% of their current population living where the water levels are predicted to rise and flood. It's called the 'locked-in date" and over 300 American cities have already reached theirs. Among them are Miami Gardens, Hoboken, and Fort Lauderdale. For cities on the locked-in track, measures much more dramatic than those currently agreed to by world leaders including President Obama are said to be needed. According to the author of the study, more aggressive cuts in emissions could save a thousand cities from reaching their anticipated date of imminent demise. If things carry on as they are Cambridge, Massachusetts -- home to MIT and Harvard -- will by locked-in by 2060. Miami could be considered a certain loss by as early as 2041.

Climate change: California sea levels may rise higher than other places around the world - TomoNews
 
06:44
SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA — Researchers from the California Ocean Protection Council authority is warning that melting ice shelves in Antarctica could cause sea levels to rise, with the most dramatic increase expected in California. According to a report by the council’s Science Advisory Team, for every foot of global sea-level rise caused by the melting West Antarctic, sea levels will rise approximately 1.25 feet in the California coast. Researchers theorize that due to Earth’s rotation and gravitational pull, melting ice in Antarctica — particularly in the western portion — is pulled toward the California coast. This makes rising sea levels more dramatic in the region. In 2100, sea levels could rise as high as 6.9 feet in San Francisco and 7.1 feet in La Jolla. The council plans to hold a series of workshops and propose measures to address the danger of rising sea levels. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Crying dog breaks the internet’s heart — but this sad dog story has a happy ending" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4prKTN9bYQc -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Is Miami Beach Doomed?
 
06:29
Miami Beach could be underwater this century. The sea level around the tourist paradise has risen steadily in recent decades and flooding in the streets has become more frequent and severe. Most of the city sits just four to five feet above sea level, and on a foundation of porous limestone—making it especially susceptible to tidal flooding and surging oceans. As experts predict the sea level to rise significantly in the coming years, the city of Miami Beach must decide how to keep itself afloat. This documentary examines how the city has taken unprecedented steps to save itself from the sea.

Study: Miami, New Orleans Can’t Be Saved From Rising Sea Levels
 
01:07
According to a recently published study, Miami, New Orleans, and a number of other US cities are already beyond the point of being saved from rising sea levels. As the world's temperature continues to increase, the West Antarctic ice sheet is under threat, and carbon emissions are still being produced at high levels.  According to a study recently published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, over 20 million people in the US are at risk of having their cities and homes completely lost to the rising sea based on current trends. Though a drastic reduction in current carbon emission rates and a resulting stabilization of the ice sheet offer some hope for most of them, Miami and New Orleans are predicted to fall under rising sea levels.  Sacramento, Boston, Norfolk, Savannah, and Tampa are also on the researchers’ list of places that are beyond the point of saving.  Others have a fighting chance if carbon emissions revert back to levels found in 1950 by the year 2050. Models show that New York City likely has until 2085 and Long Beach, California, until 2075 before they become submerged.  Jacksonville, Florida, on the other hand, only has roughly 20 years to see a significant reversal of current trends.

IAAC City-Sense_Effects of Rising Sea Levels on Coastal Cities - GE2MTZ
 
01:21
4th Advanced Architecture Contest 2011, on the theme of CITY-SENSE: Shaping our environment with real-time data. The aim of the competition is to promote discussion and research through which to generate insights and visions, ideas and proposals that help us envisage what the city and the habitat of the 21st century will be like. www.advancedarchitecturecontest.org _____________________________________________________________ Due to global warming, the polar ice caps are melting and sea levels are rising at an accelerated rate. Coastal cities around the world are being affected by these changes; frequent flooding, land loss, drought, are all putting valuable land in danger. Our cities are not designed to respond to our behavioral changes, it is our task to adapt these cities for the upcoming phenomena. By 2080, studies show that sea levels will rise an average of 1.5 meters, drastically diminishing coastal shores, covering as much as 33% of the world's coastal cities. In the capital city of San Juan, Puerto Rico, this affects commerce, tourism, coastline development, all of which are inevitably growing and expanding. So, how can this urban city center be protected? This project proposes a series of modifications to the existing Bay plan, taking into account the upcoming coastal development, protecting it from rising sea levels in the next few years. The city urgently needs urban water management strategies, along with smart grid technologies that will facilitate water management and flood warnings. Strategies include: a new waterfront along the coast of the San Juan Bay, widened rivers to absorb the incoming water levels, flood certain areas to create new bodies of water and protect more valuable land, new system of water canals and dykes within coastal neighborhoods. A technology framework will be integrated into the city to help manage water levels and safety hazards. Sensors will be installed in certain areas on the coastal shore to warn the citizens when water levels are dangerous and evacuation is necessary. Flood control starts with information. This information is collected by monitoring waves and water levels. Sensors will be installed in dikes and around the waterfront to provide real-time information about the behavior of water levels and potential flooding. This data will then be accessible to the citizens for their safety and daily planning.

Canals Proposed For Boston In Response To Rising Sea Levels
 
01:04
To deal with the potential threat of rising sea levels, the Urban Land Institute in Boston has proposed to change some of the streets into canals, similar to those in Venice, Italy or Amsterdam, Netherlands. Rising water levels are cause for concern in highly populated coastal areas like the city of Boston where the ocean is expected to rise by over seven feet by the year 2100. To deal with this potential threat, the Urban Land Institute in Boston has proposed to change some of the streets into canals, similar to those in Venice, Italy or Amsterdam, Netherlands. But according to one expert, the water levels fluctuate more drastically in Boston than in European cities that use canals. John Bolduc, an environmental planner for the City of Cambridge notes, “We’re at the point of really thinking what we need to do differently, given the future we’re facing. We’re all going to have to cope with more flooding.” The Urban Land Institute report outlining the plan to build canals focuses on the parts that will become vulnerable to flooding as sea levels continue to rise. A canal system in Boston would also include artificial wetlands and flood gates to control the movement of water. Other solutions to rising water levels are discussed in the report, including building elevated walkways for pedestrians.
