2,500 Scientists Say Most East Coast Beaches Will Be Gone In Two Years

Thousands of our top climate scientists predicted the demise of East Coast beaches by the year 2020. Use of “uncertain computer simulations” made the climate experts “more confident.

The new feature of the assessment — the first in five years by the intergovernmental panel — is that the experts are now more confident than before that global climate change is indeed in progress and that at least some of the warming is due to human action, specifically the burning of coal, oil and wood, which releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Like its predecessors, the forecast depends heavily on uncertain computer simulations of the atmosphere’s response to heat-trapping gases.
