Could the internet be gone by 2030?

Rising seas could flood the underground cables that carry the internet, potentially causing widespread outages.
Seawater is likely to submerge more than 4,000 miles of internet cable in the U.S. and engulf more than a thousand data centers that house servers, routers and other hardware, researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Oregon said.  The researchers identified New York, Miami and Seattle as the metropolitan areas at greatest risk for flooded internet infrastructures.
