Scientists have dramatically underestimated the impact rising seas will have on cities around the world, according to research published in the journal Nature Communications.
One hundred and fifty million people are currently living in places that will be below the high-tide line in 30 years - three times as many people as the old projection methods estimated.
Previous estimates relied on satellite data to forecast sea-level rise, but satellites cant distinguish between ground level and taller elements integrated into the landscape, like trees and buildings. The paper, authored by Scott Kulp and Benjamin Strauss of the Princeton, used artificial intelligence to identify errors in the data and correct them.
Their model paints a grim picture: whole swaths of Vietnam, Thailand, coastal China, India, Egypt and Iraq swallowed by ocean.

Fortunes to be made in higher-ground real estate.
Jane Fonda is one of these self appointed climate scientists.
Somewhere along the coast of India, about a 100 yards off shore there is a sunken city and buildings built hundreds of years ago.
They sank, or the water rose.
People dealt with it.
It’s not like it’s not been going on since the last Ice Age.....................................
Uh huh. The sky is falling too.
What about Miami (and all of South Florida), Charleston, Manhattan, Boston, Savannah? Are they chopped liver?
Newsflash: global temperatures are decreasing and this is probably going to continue for quite some time.
Ands cooling will kill more people than warming.
You mean the earth just now started warming and cities might end up under water? No wai!
This must be a new thing and completely disastrous.
The planet is drowning alright... in bullshit.
40 years ago Al Gore was arguing that Florida would be underwater by now. But....there it is.
Is this the same global warming thats causing the explosion of Antarctic sea ice that may cause another ice age?

Houston? It’s 30 to 50 feet over sea level
Tragic but worth the loss so long as it takes Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, LA, Boston, Providence, New York, & Washington DC. (ESPECIALLY Washington)
Howard Hughs didn’t live long enough to get that beach property in Nevada.
Eh, those places could all use a good hosing-down anyway.
The problem is....if we DON'T spend a lot of money, the prediction will never happen either.
What a joke.
Mother Earth is paying them back for dumping their plastic straws into the ocean.
We only have 11.35 years left so this doesn’t matter.
