Study: Rising Seas Will Swallow U.S. Historic Sites


Thousands of U.S. historic sites could be submerged by rising sea waters by the year 2100.  A new study released Wednesday says almost 14.000 archeological sites and national monuments will be underwater by the end of the century due to climate change.  Scientists at the University of Tennessee said 1-in-10 archeological sites they studied in southeastern coastal states risk inundation.  

The authors said the projected sea level rise will result in the loss of both the pre-Columbian and human historic record.
