Almost a month after the U.S. announced its exit from the Paris Climate Agreement, a new study has come up with the list of cities that are likely to get affected in the next hundred years if immediate steps are not taken.

According to a study released Wednesday, cities along the Jersey Shore and in parts of North Carolina, South Louisiana, and neighboring areas that have been known as vulnerable from years are expected to be inundated by 2035.

By 2060, cities like Galveston, Texas, Sanibel Island, Florida, Hilton Head, South Carolina, Ocean City, Maryland, and many others along the Jersey Shore can meet the same fate.

According to the list, more than 50 cities with a population of more than 100,000 could be affected by the end of the century. Cities like Boston, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and four of the five boroughs of New York will be inundated.

While the cities on the west coast are not expected to face the brunt over the next few decades, places like San Francisco and Los Angeles will be on the list by 2100. "This research hones in on exactly how sea level rise is hitting us first. The number of people experiencing chronic floods will grow much more quickly than sea level itself," Benjamin Strauss, vice president for Sea Level and Climate Impacts at Climate Central said in reaction to this study, CNN reported

According to the study, there are three different sea level rise scenarios.  There is a “high scenario” in which emissions rise through the end of the century and ice sheets melt faster to yield about 6.5 feet of sea level rise.  Secondly, there is an “intermediate scenario” that projects carbon emissions peaking around mid-century and about 4 feet of sea level rise globally with ice melting at a moderate rate that increases over the time.  And lastly, there is a “low scenario” that assumes carbon emissions decline steeply and warming is limited to less than 2 degrees Celsius—in line with the primary goal of the Paris Climate Agreement.

By 2035, about 170 communities will face chronic inundation and possible retreat from affected areas under the intermediate or high scenarios, the study says. The number will rise to about 270 communities by 2060. The number can also go up to 360 under the "high scenario" situation. About 40 percent of chronically inundated communities in either of the three scenarios would see at least half of their land flooded. By 2100, as many as 490 communities will face the brunt, the study added.

The study, however, says that if we act today to achieve the temperature and emissions reductions goals as mentioned in Paris Climate Agreement and succeed in slowing the acceleration of sea level rise, around 380 communities can be saved from the side-effects.

The study states serious human consequences can be avoided if the reducing global warming emission is made a national priority. The U.S. can still make deep cuts in heat-trapping emissions and contribute to global efforts to limit climate change.
