Doom and Gloom: Sea level rise could reshape the United States, trigger migration inland. AI shows climate change-driven sea-level rise could trigger mass migration to cities inland.

Researchers found the impact of rising oceans will ripple across the country, beyond coastal areas at risk of flooding, as affected people move inland. Popular relocation choices will include land-locked cities such as Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Denver and Las Vegas.
