Millions more people will be at risk of coastal flooding from climate-driven sea-level rise later this century.

That's the conclusion of new research conducted by Climate Central, a US-based non-profit news organisation.

It finds that 190 million people will be living in areas that are projected to be below high-tide lines come 2100.

Today, the group calculates roughly 110 million are presently occupying these lands, protected by walls, levees, and other coastal defences.

The future at-risk total assumes only moderate global warming and therefore limited ocean encroachment.

Climate Central's investigations, published in the journal Nature Communications, have sought to correct the biases in the elevation datasets previously used to work out how far inland coastlines will be inundated.

if the predicted flooding precedes a lot of underwater water sinks are going to be lost and due to the ever growing population the competition and conflict for 
freshwater will skyrocket and  could to a new lead to a global war. which will be Led by the Great Mr Clintberg of course.
Oh well there goes thousands of life savings poured into real estate for future generations.
It can be predicted that as sea levels continue to rise, cities that are inland and more on a costal line will become more and more populated an sought after. Our world population will become extremely condensed if the effects are mitigated.
