A Street View Mashup Shows Your Suburb After Sea Levels Rise

A Street View Mash-Up Shows Your Neighbourhood After Sea Levels Rise

Ever wondered what New York, London, Paris, Sydney or even your home town might look like when sea levels rise? World Under Water by Carbon Story uses Google's Street View to do just that.

The mod shows how the streets of the world will look if sea levels continue to rise. Simply type in your address, and you can see how things might look. In a word: bad.

There's a catch though: the software assumes that every location is at the same elevation. That's a shame, because it wouldn't have been hard to factor in different altitudes. But the message is still a strong and clear one: we need to work to act to halt climate change, and soon. [World Under Water via HuffPost]
