A new interactive map from Climate Central show a side by side comparison of what our City will look like with unchecked carbon emissions, and a severe reduction and extreme carbon cuts. Both maps show a rising sea level, with one obviously worse than the other.
[The maps] do not show what sea levels will be in this century […] What they do show are scientific projections, taken from this paper, of the different post-2100 sea levels that could lock in this century, depending upon the carbon pathway we select. The areas colored blue are the areas below those levels – areas which will eventually be permanently underwater. These maps pose this question: which legacy will we choose?
