    Rising seas could affect three times more people by 2050 than previously thought, according to new research, threatening to all but erase some of the world’s great coastal cities.
    The authors of a paper published Tuesday developed a more accurate way of calculating land elevation based on satellite readings, a standard way of estimating the effects of sea level rise over large areas, and found that the previous numbers were far too optimistic. The new research shows that some 150 million people are now living on land that will be below the high-tide line by midcentury. Southern Vietnam could all but disappear.
    So would Mumbai, Shanghai, Alexandria, Basra.

    I am surprised SF is #1. It is a beautiful city, and one of my favorite places to visit, but in the last several years it has a growing homeless population and there are areas of the city that are very unsanitary.
