Beach Erosion In South Florida Adds To Concerns About Global Warming

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL - NOVEMBER 27: A speed limit sign leans over due to damage caused by beach erosion along route A-1-A impassable to vehicles on November 27, 2012 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The beach was eroded away last month when Hurricane Sandy passed by to the east and now City officials are saying that the damage may preview what rising sea levels can mean for coastal communities throughout South Florida. Climate scientists predict sea levels in South Florida will rise by 1 foot by 2070, 2 feet by 2115, and 3 feet by 2150. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)
