There are more cities at risk of disappearing underwater than you may think. Whether it’s famously at-risk American cities like New York, Miami and New Orleans, cities with canals like Amsterdam and Venice or other major destinations like Kolkata or Shanghai, these cities could be under water within decades. WatchMojo counts down ten cities that will be underwater because of climate change.

    • You need to do more reading on this topic. You seem to be wrapped up in conspiracy theories. Global warming is happening.

    • It is all about fear mongering… the facts (the data acquired by the scientists themselves!) is pretty clear about it…the problem is just the average man will not be able to read it accurately. 97% agreeing on a point on natural phenomena should have all alarm bells ringing! Independent scientists (ones NOT founded by pro-global warming governments) will tell you a complete different story…the story about the upcoming ice-age which perfectly fits the data of the IPCC is far more reliable since it contains proven FACTS of historical ice ages. Are we poluting the Earth? Absolutely! Does CO2 have anything to do with global warming…. only as far as it is actually stalling a next ice-age. Oh well CNN and WAPO will tell us otherwise anyway… one has to start doing their own research… not on global warming but the “follow the money” strategy. Also the Earth rotates…and anyone with some idea of physics can tell you the vast majority of the extra water will surround the equator…simply because the Earth is spinning. The African deltas would be badly hit…not Amsterdam or New York. San Francisco is in much more danger because of the tectonic plates…which are one of the causes for global warming (changing ocean-streams).

  1. No point going past the first line. The science is NOT in. The UN emails confirmed it. Now that I know you people go along with the liberal fear mongering, I’ll have to think twice about watching any more of your videos. My home town of Baltimore Maryland is on the water with all kinds of peers. The water is NOT rising. The houses by the water are STILL there. Same with NY and every other city or town by the water. Erosion is NOT the same as “rising oceans” or climate change. Goodbye to this channel

  2. if you believe the bible ,a meter will hit the ocean sometimes in the future and all the island of the earth are gone.

  3. What about Georgetown, Guyana, which already has a wall to prevent the Atlantic Ocean from flooding the city???

  4. everyone is just accepting that all this will happen in the future but it’s not to late, if we get our shit together and actually do something we can solve this i know it
