With all the news about the hazards and dire impact of rising sea levels from climate change. nothing brings this home more than actually seeing it.

Artist and researcher Nickolay Lamm has taken the predictions and transformed them into real world “this is it” photographs.  Using projections sourced from Climate Central, topographical maps and a quick calculation that took into account land elevation, tide, and sea level rise, Lamm then applied the findings to stock photos on StorageFront.com. His graphic images of flooded cities and historical locations in California drive the point home.

  1. Anyone can photoshop pictures. This does not make it true.

    Man made Climate Change is nothing more than hogwash!

    • If that’s the case, then perhaps you might want to check out the science behind the growing evidence – major glacier melts around the world (now even in Antarctica), little to no snow in the Alps, etc.

      Denying it doesn’t make it disappear. Perhaps it’s time to investigate.
