Your world, underwater: Hereâ€™s what US cities will look like after global warming
Geege Schuman stashed this in Climate Change
The United States Geological SurveyÂ estimatesÂ that if the ice sheets located in the Antarctic and Greenland melt as a result of climate change, sea levels could rise up to 80 meters (approx. 262 feet).Â Jeffrey Linn, a Seattle-based urban planner who is between jobs, decided to use some ofÂ his spare time to show how this climate apocalypse would affect aÂ number of cities in North America.
Linn was inspired by a post on a website calledÂ Burrito JusticeÂ that envisioned San Francisco under water. In this slightly morbid exercise, Linn makes up imaginative names for the islands and inlets that would remain of Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland, Vancouver or Montreal.
