Impact of Sea Level Rise in Boston Worse than Previously Thought.

Again, it's all on the ice-melt in Antarctica and the release of water due to the reduced gravity of the shrunken Antarctic ice cap. The Law of Gravity works on objects on and orbitng Earth and every other planet, tides, solar systems, galaxies, and even water around ice caps and hoards of wealth!

From The Boston Globe:
The consequences of climate change on Boston are expected to be far more calamitous than previous studies have suggested, a new report commissioned by the city says. 
In the worst-case scenario, sea levels could rise more than 10 feet by the end of the century — nearly twice what was previously predicted — plunging about 30 percent of Boston under water. Temperatures in 2070 could exceed 90 degrees for 90 days a year, compared with an average of 11 days now.
The report, by scientists from the University of Massachusetts and other local universities, has raised concerns in City Hall just two weeks after Mayor Martin J. Walsh attended a climate summit in Beijing.
The updated projections for Boston take into account new research that suggests the accelerating melt of the ice sheets covering Antarctica will have a disproportionate impact on cities along the East Coast.
