Worst case global warming and skyscrapers
 
Suppose (for the sake of argument) the icecaps really melt.
How will coastal skyscrapers fare? Will they rise up like islands, or will they be washed away by the waves?

The structures usually aren't designed to take that sort of water damage, so they'd probably get condemned pretty quick, but they'd stay standing for a while probably.

I think we already have a thread for potential sea level rise. Can a mod merge this with the "what we will lose thread" or whatever it is called.
