Scientists believe that sea level rise caused by global warming present a lot of risk to New York City and Long Island. More than 300,000 people could be affected with just with six feet of sea level rise. Scientist predict that the Atlantic coast including the south of Brooklyn stretching all the way to the end of Long Island could lose land. This event would cost New York billions of dollars since airports, buildings, railroads and industry would be under water. Other areas affected in the vicinity include New Jersey, downtown Manhattan, the Bronx, and Staten Island.
