Besides extreme heat this summer and wildfires, American coastlines have been facing increasing high tide floods. On that last item, NASA says this is due to a “wobble” in the moon’s orbit working in tandem with climate change-fueled rising sea levels.
Since not all have been reading the journal Nature Climate Change, I’ll fill you in on what NASA and the University of Hawaii reported: upcoming changes in the moon’s orbit could lead to record flooding on Earth in the next decade.
Get ready because flooding in American coastal cities could be a lot worse in the 2030s, which is when the next moon “wobble” is expected to begin. This flooding can cause significant damage to infrastructure and even displace communities.
