On the flooding of the WTC memorial site: “After the horrible events of 9/11 we said never again. But this is what would happen…”

In a scene that now seems eerily prescient he demonstrates how rising sea levels and storm surges would impact different parts of the globe.

At one point the film shows the flooding of the WTC memorial site (go to 2:20 of clip):
