State's sea levels may rise by 0.38 metre by 2050 21.8.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Few decades on, structures near Mumbai's seashores may be inundated by rising sea levels. In what may drastically alter perceptions about climate change and its impact on coastal cities like Mumbai, a state government study has predicted a 0.38 metre rise in sea levels across Maharashtra by 2050. The Maharashtra Maritime Board's (MMB) shoreline management plan (SMP) has suggested that construction near the coast in Mumbai must rise to a minimum 7.59 metres above mean sea levels by 2050 to withstand storm surges and floods. While Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) notifications regulate a 500 metre horizontal region from the high-tide line, the SMP lays down a vertical impact of the sea-level rise. This can be incorporated into urban and land use planning, serving as baseline data for planners executing shoreline infrastructure projects like Mumbai's coastal road. "This is Maharashtra's first SMP. Developed countries like Singapore and Australia have SMPs and consider them as reference points in coastal ...

Rising sea levels to flood New York, Boston, San Francisco, and Miami: study 13.7.2017 DNA: Top News
Major US cities like New York, Boston and Miami may face chronic flooding over the next few decades, warn scientists who have found that sea level rise due to climate change may cause 60% of coastal communities in the country to lose their homes by 2100. Scientists made list of US cities that may not make it through the next 20, 50 or 80 years due to sea level rise. If the sea level predictions are accurate, places like New York, Boston, San Francisco and Miami face a grim future, according to researchers from the Union of Concerned Scientists - a nonprofit science advocacy organisation in the US. They released a report listing the cities that will be inundated with water, that is, they will be flooded at least 26 times per year - equivalent of a flood every other week. "Between 165 and 180 chronically inundated communities in just the next 15 to 20 years; between 270 and 360 in roughly 40 years, depending on the pace of sea level rise; and 490 by end of century with a moderate sea level rise scenario," ...

California Sea Level Could Rise 10 Feet By End Of This Century 28.4.2017 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
A California government council is warning that climate change could cause ocean waters off the coast to rise far higher than previously anticipated ― an increase in  sea-level by as much as 10 feet by the end of the century. This worst-case scenario would destroy airports in Oakland and San Francisco, and would swamp roadways, low-lying bridges, railroad tracks, farmland, beaches and some towns. As many as 42,000 homes would be completely submerged, warns the report  released this month by a  California Ocean Protection Council  advisory team. The council adopted an updated report  with higher sea-level estimates on Wednesday. The dire prediction follows the Louisiana governor’s declaration of an emergency over the state’s vanishing coastline. Louisiana could lose as much as 2,250 square miles of shorline to rising waters in the next 50 years, Gov. John Bel Edwards noted. Miami also faces a dangerous increase in sea level. A study in Nature Climate Change last week warned that 2.5 million Miami ...

Small countries most vulnerable to warming climate: IMF 13.12.2016 DNA: Opinion
The world's smallest countries are highly vulnerable to climate change and should work to adapt as sea levels rise and storms grow more frequent, according to an IMF report released on Monday. However, the needs of such states -- those with the lowest populations and least land mass -- are underfunded by as much as $1 billion annually, the International Monetary Fund report said, calling on both the fund and smaller member states to help prepare for life on a warmer, more disaster-prone planet. Unlike larger countries that can absorb catastrophic damages from natural disasters more easily, small states are more likely to see entire populations and economies affected, said IMF Assistant Director for strategy and policy Peter Allum -- who coordinated the project -- during a call with reporters. "This magnifies the size of the disaster relative to the size of the economy and its resource base," he said. The study examined 34 developing IMF member countries with populations of fewer than 1.5 million in ...
