Bay Area Keystone XL activists took to rain-soaked Palo Alto streets on Saturday, Sept. 21, to demonstrate against the Keystone tar sands pipeline and the effects of global warming.
Palo Alto neighborhoods from Oregon Expressway to San Antonio Road and from U.S. Highway 101 to Louis Road would be under water given a 1-foot sea-level rise in the next 40 to 70 years, according to the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
Scientists predict a 3-foot sea-level rise would occur by 2100.
San Francisco Airport, large areas of Foster City, East Palo Alto, Moffett Field and Alviso would also be under water.
The NOAA sea-level-rise map is available at csc.noaa.gov/slr/beta/viewer/.
