Will Miami Be Around in 2067?

The New York Times discusses whether Miami will be around in 2067. The prospects for Miami are grim, a scientist tells Mario Alejandro Ariza in his new book: “The water’s rise will be merciless and — geologically speaking — swift.” Ariza wishes there were a more favorable forecast for his hometown. Like his Dominican grandmother, he hopes to celebrate his 80th birthday in Miami. That will be in 2067, when most of the region’s coastal zone, about 500 square miles that is home to 60,000 people, is likely to be underwater unless bold measures are taken.
