BY STEVEN WINE, MIAMI — Climate change poses a threat to South Florida's way of life.

That includes Miami's customary spot in the NFL's Super Bowl rotation.

The game will be played Sunday in Miami for the 11th time, the most of any city.

But the sea and temperature are rising, which could eventually make South Florida an unsuitable Super Bowl site.

A leading expert on sea level rise says it could be a problem in 20 years or less.

Scientists have warned the sea in South Florida could rise by up to 30 feet by the end of the century.
