Rising Sea Levels Locked-in for Alameda, Many Other American Cities

Climate central says that sea level rise is already locked-in.

Climate central says that sea level rise is already locked-in.

A climate study released this week says that rising sea levels causing flooding in Alameda are already ‘locked in’ based on current levels of climate pollution.

Climate Central, of Princeton, New Jersey, released the report. The non-profit bills itself as “an independent organization of leading scientists and journalists researching and reporting the facts about our changing climate and its impact on the American public.”

Along with the study the group released an interactive map that shows their 1 in 6 chance estimate that sea level rise plus the tide plus storm surge will flood much of Bay Farm Island by 2020.

By 2030, a four-foot sea level rise could flood virtually all of the land at Alameda Point targeted for redevelopment, as well as portions of the main island, affecting almost 20,000 people an 8,000 homes.

In a blog post explaining the study, the author, Benjamin Strauss, wrote, “it appears that the amount of carbon pollution to date has already locked in more than 4 feet of sea level rise past today’s levels.”

In late June, the U.S. Navy conveyed the first parcel of 1,300 acres of land at Alameda Point, the former Naval Air Station Alameda.
