2100: A Dystopian Utopia in USA Today!

São Paulo, Brazil, frequently floods, so homes are suspended above the waters. The Brooklyn borough of New York City is protected by storm-surge barriers while turbines and parks line Gowanus Canal to soak up water and energy from the frequent storms that would otherwise flood the nearby homes.
