Hey, the tourism industry could benefit mightily-just picture the marketing. "Come visit New York City: America's Venice-complete with hydrogen-fuel cell powered gondolas for the Grand Scenic Tour package."

The good ol' human entrepreneurial spirit shall not be deterred by the inconveniences of dramatic shifts of environmental circumstance-after all we're human beings; the smartest, cleverest and most adaptable critters ever to stride (or float) on the surface of this here planet and if we had a few "oopsies" along the way making things..well...a bit more difficult to endure we'll devise methods of making do-and making money-just like we have demonstrated time and time again.

@Bill, Perhaps this may be bad fiction but it sure sounds plausible as a literary example of the attitude people would take during the incipient stages of environmental collapse.
