Rising sea levels are going to mess with the internet, sooner than you 

Despite its magnitude, this network is increasingly vulnerable to sea 
levels inching their way higher, according to research presented at an 
academic conference in Montreal this week. The findings estimate that 
within 15 years, thousands of miles of what should be land-bound cables in 
the United States will be submerged underwater.

“Most of the climate change-related impacts are going to happen very 
soon,” says Paul Barford, a computer scientist at the University of 
Wisconsin and lead author of the paper.
