Cities more severe and potentially fatal weather conditions. With this in mind, scientists have begun to pinpoint locations that could become unbearable for humans by 2100.
Heatwaves are increasing in frequency, duration, and intensity worldwide in response to climate change.
These 10 cities might soon struggle to support human life. And for the most part, these areas are already witnessing the devastating effects of climate change.
According to a study published in 2016, the risk of sea-level rise in the continental US is very high, and more than 3.3 million Miami could face catastrophic flooding by 2100.
It was researched that between 2010 and 2100, more than 13 million people could be exposed to 6 feet worth of sea-level rise. Of those residents, about a quarter are in Miami-Dade and Broward counties in Florida.
In the face of this catastrophic scenario, Miami might not be able to adequately prepare.
