How High will the Sea Level Rise in YOUR Community?
Now you can find out.
If you live on or near a coastline, you can enter your zip code into an interactive map to see how high the sea level is going to rise in your neighborhood. The program is called Surging Seas, and it makes these calculations based on data from federal agencies.
Ben Strauss, vice president for climate impacts at Climate Central, said:
“This is a brave new world. Rising seas are posing a totally new challenge to American ingenuity.”
It's too bad this information is necessary, but since the fossil fuel barons and their climate-denying useful idiots are in control of the government, maybe this is the best we can hope for. It's hard to tell if this interactive map will actually be useful, or if it'll be like that Saturday Night Live skit on board a plane, where an alarm starts shrieking to let everyone know the plane will be crashing in ten seconds.
