Climate Changes Future

Please read this news first.

Interestingly, we all probably knew about this in our minds. I have always believed the "point-of-no-return" was past years ago. So plan your long-term (in 10 to 20 years time) future if you are really thinking ahead as sea-level rises.

I decided to have a look the world after sea level rises above 200 metres. So I went to here LDEO ClimateGroup DATASETS WORLDBATH where you can generate your own topology map of the world.

Here is something I prepared earlier...

This is a topology world map with light blue hightlighting 200 metres above sea-level.

Its looking like a very different world as we know it. Most of Europe, Eastern seaboard of USA, Amazon, Australian coastlines, and most islands are all gone. Fortunately, its probably going to happen very slow, or at least I hope it doesn't accelerate. Future is looking more like a bad Kevin Costner movie.
