Florida most threatened by rising sea levels in the U.S.
Climate change: Florida faces rising sea levels
Florida is the US state that faces the greatest threat from global warming. This is apparent in two of its most iconic locations: the vast wetlands of the Everglades and Miami's seafront.

But some scientists say that if properly protected, Florida's wetlands could hold the key to a brighter future - not only for the state but for the entire planet.
