Results Would be Catastrophic
Hurricane Michael was the 3rd worst storm ever to hit the USA. It had 155mph winds and a 14-foot storm surge. Storms appear to be gettng worse, from the warming of climate change. Yet we are still doing so little to help.
What Happens if Storms Worsen?
Some scientists are forecasting up to 20 feet in sea rise, which means storm surges that are far worse. Every major city on all coasts in the planet could be destroyed.
Hurricane Michael will cost billions in storm damage, perhaps as much as $30 billion - and future storms are projected to be worse. When will we start to fight global warming? It is the weather extremes that cause the most damage - and weather extremes are what Climate Change is causing.
Many of the poorer communities are in low-lying areas, which are the hardest hit by storms in general - and storm surge in particular. It looks like future storm surge could completely, and permanently, inundate entire communities.
