He said Lower Manhattan would be underwater by 2018 and that you wouldn’t be able to get a glass of water in New York restaurants because of the permanent drought.

NOAA issued six different “scenarios” for sea level rise.

Lower Manhattan is below the “Low Scenario” and sea level is rising there at the same rate it was 150 years ago.

One thousand years ago, King Knut took his subjects to the sea to show them that government doesn’t control sea level.  Unfortunately we don’t have politicians that intelligent any more.

Hansen was correct about one thing however.  You can’t get a glass of water in a Manhattan restaurant any more.
