A study released last month by the Washington-based World Resources Institute stating many airports around the world — including those in U.S. cities Key West, Palm Springs and New Orleans — could be underwater by the year 2100.

The findings showed that if climate change continues to lead to higher sea levels, around 80 airports around the world could be affected.

“If you step outside and throw a dart blindfolded, almost anything will be impacted by climate change, including airports,” said Noah Maghsadi, one of the authors of the study.

Some airports are already working to combat the problem using countermeasures discussed in the study, like higher runways, sea walls and better drainage systems. Among these are Singapore Changi Airport, Boston Logan International Airport and San Francisco International Airport.

“Based on this analysis, even if we do curtail climate change, adaptation still needs to happen,” said Maghsadi.
