The major impacts will be

1. Agriculture will shift - with each farm having to readjust its mix of plants to the total new environment

3. Ocean flooding will require significant infrastructure to control in seaside communities and will impact risks and value of coastal properties. Storm surges may flood crop lands with salt water, making them useless.

4. Water will become more scarce yet more in demand - a double hit on prices
