Climate: here is what will disappear from the United States
From the Statue of Liberty to Jamestown: here are the sites that will vanish from the United States because of climate change.
According to a report published by the Union of Concerned Scientists, more than two dozen historical sites in the U.S. are likely to disappear due to severe natural disasters including floods, drought and fires caused by climate change.
From the Statue of Liberty to Jamestown, the first English settlement in Virginia, from Boston’s historic districts to the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Monument, Maryland and, finally, the NASA Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral, Florida.
The city of Jamestown, for example, may be completely flooded due to sea level rise, as well as Fort Monroe, that will probably be an isolated island in 70 years.
In California, on the other hand, fires are the most alarming problem – a dozen of the 20 most dangerous wildfires since 1932 broke out from 2002 forward – as well as the drought, which cost Central Vally farmers more than 1.7 million dollors.
