CBS Warns That Melting Ice Means 'Much of South Florida' Will Be 'Underwater'

'A 10-foot rise in sea level would submerge tunnels and subways here in Manhattan and parts of Queens and Brooklyn'

ABC, CBS, and NBC Freak Out Over Melting Antarctic Ice: ‘Much of South Florida’ Will Be ‘Underwater’ (NewsBusters)

On Monday, May 13, all three network evening newscasts hyped the dire consequences of a new NASA study which show that “large parts of the western Antarctica ice sheet appears to have collapsed.” 

ABC, CBS, and NBC hyperventilated over the report, and warned of rising sea levels in the immediate future. CBS News’ Elaine Quijano warned “A 10-foot rise in sea level would submerge tunnels and subways here in Manhattan and parts of Queens and Brooklyn. But, Scott, it would also put the entire city of Miami Beach and much of South Florida underwater.”
