Obama: Rising Seas Could Swallow STATUE OF LIBERTY, Ellis Island

-

Video-Climate change is threatening to submerge the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, Pres. Obama warned Monday in a speech at Yosemite National Park.

Climate change is also causing birds to fly north when the weather gets hot, Obama cautioned. As a result, rising seas threaten to engulf “icons like the Statue of Liberty,” Obama said:

“As we look ahead, in the coming years and decades, rising temperatures could mean no more glaciers at Glacier National Park. No more Joshua Trees at Joshua Tree National Park. Rising seas could destroy vital ecosystems in the Everglades, and at some point could even threaten icons like the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.”
