MIAMI Chaussures Homme Nike Vapormax Flyknit 2018 Rouge Pas Cher , the United States, Sept. 11 (Xinhua) -- As bad as Hurricane Irma is, an even more insidious threat is coming, as climate change causes sea levels to slowly rise and threatens to put large chunks of the U.S. state of Florida under water.
While ocean levels have risen and fallen over tens of thousands of years, they have remained the same over the past 5,000 or 6 Chaussures Homme Nike Vapormax Bleu Noir Pas Cher ,000 years, since the dawn of recorded human history.
Now, however, is the first time in recorded history that they are changing.
"South Florida's doomsday doesn't come with a hurricane. It just comes very quietly as the water creeps up," Daniel Kreeger, executive director of the Association of Climate Change Officers Chaussures Homme Nike Vapormax Flyknit 2018 Bleu Pas Cher , told Xinhua.
"We're so close to sea level that if sea level is rising, there's a point where you don't need a storm (to do harm). You're just underwater," he said.
That sits in sharp contrast with just two decades ago, when the main concern of residents and property owners was hurricanes, he said.
Now, low lying cities worldwide Chaussures Nike Vapormax Flyknit 2018 Grise Pas Cher , from Mumbai to Bangkok to right here in southern Florida, are under the same threat.
According to images collected by NASA, global sea levels have risen 3 inches (7.6 cm) since 1992.
The U.S. National Ocean Service said global sea levels will likely continue to rise, although it remains unknown by how much.
Some experts said that could spell disaster for southern Florida, which includes Miami and the surrounding area.
A confluence of factors puts Miami under particular risk. For one thing, the city lies on a foundation of limestone Chaussures Homme Nike Vapormax Flyknit 2018 Noir Pas Cher , which allows water to seep through from underneath and come up through the sewers and drainage system to cause flooding.
That can happen during the king tide season -- a time of higher-than-usual tides -- and can in some cases happen without even a drop of rain.
City officials, politicians and climate change experts with whom Xinhua has spoken said this confluence of factors -- rising sea levels, a limestone foundation and king tides -- threaten to make large parts of the area uninhabitable.
While it remains unknown whether that will take decades or a century, local residents said it seems to be getting worse.
Jose, a waiter at a downtown Miami hotel who only gave his first name, said even a couple of hours of rain can flood the streets in certain neighborhoods in Miami.
"I've been here all my life and I don't remember it being this bad when I was a kid Chaussures Homme Nike Vapormax Flyknit Noir Rainbow Pas Cher ," he told Xinhua a couple of days before the hurricane hit.
"Just a couple of weeks ago there was a couple of hours of rain and already the water was up here," Jose said, demonstrating with his hands that water was above his ankles.
Danny, an Uber driver in downtown Miami, echoed those sentiments, telling Xinhua that rainfall causes light flooding in some streets as he traverses the area.
Some in the real estate business said Florida may be the next big real estate investment destination for foreign investors including Chinese. But if parts of the state see more frequent flooding Chaussures Nike Vapormax 2018 Noir Pas Cher , that trend could reverse.
Southern Florida is historically a major retirement destination for Americans, a party place for the rich and famous, and boasts a vibrant Cuban community that has lived there since the 1960s, many of whom are wealthy.

TOKYO Pas Cher Chaussures Nike Vapormax Off-White Blanche , Sept. 1 (Xinhua) -- Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike came under fire Friday from a civic group and Korean residents in Japan for not paying tribute at an annual memorial ceremony held for Korean people murdered in the turmoil after the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake.
Unlike previous years, both the Tokyo governor and Sumida Mayor Toru Yamamoto did not send a tribute to the ceremony, which angered a civic group which promotes friendship with both Seoul and Pyongyang.
Despite sending a tribute last year, Koike said she opted not to this year but would commemorate all the victims of the quake at an another memorial service being held the same day.
The civic group issued a statement saying Koike's actions are "saying that murder victims and those who lost their lives in a natural disaster are equivalent and thus she does not need to send a tribute."
Yasuhiko Miyagawa, the leader of the group, said he was angered by Koike's decision because deaths from natural disasters are completely different from murders. He said Koike was not empathetic towards the bereaved families.
He added that it is important that the correct information continues to be passed down.
Around 105 Chaussures Nike Vapormax Off-White Noir AA3831-100 Pas Cher ,000 people lost their lives in the Great Kanto Earthquake which struck on Sept. 1, 1923.
In the chaotic aftermath of the quake, Koreans and Chinese people there were murdered by military and paramilitary forces following such rumors as those people planning to riot.
The cenotaph built in Yokoamicho Park to commemorate the lives lost states that the "precious lives of slightly more than 6,000 Koreans were robbed."
Koike choosing not to pay tribute at the ceremony reportedly follows a Tokyo metropolitan assembly member urging her to consider carefully about sending a message as there are differing views on how many Korean residents were murdered in the aftermath.
Miyagawa said that Koike's decision showed a lack of empathy towards bereaved family members.
He stressed that the massacre should never be forgotten o
