“USGS study predicts more disastrous effects from sea level rise in Bay Area”

“The effects of sea level rise in the Bay Area could be more disastrous than what most people think, according to a new study written by a team of researchers led by the United States Geological Survey. It could cost the state of California $150 billion in property damage and impact 600,000 Californians. And the cost of retrofitting the infrastructure of the state’s major ports to deal with 6 feet of sea level rise, which is the extreme end of what could happen this century based on the USGS modeling, could cost between $9-12 billion.”
