This map shows 40 meters of sea level rise. Only 2/3 of the world’s ice sheets melted to produce this archipelago.
I spent a week in Montreal once–and I’ve been in love with it ever since.
I don’t really speak French. I gave names to some of the larger islands, but I don’t know it well enough to do it justice. If you have suggestions, let me know!
Thank you to all the commenters who helped me with grammar and place names.
This is the seventh in a series of extreme sea level rise maps. The other six so far are:
See the original–Burrito Justice’s map of San Francisco.
This will happen someday, but not in our lifetimes. Some who have dared to speculate on a timeline have given themselves plenty of space for error in their predictions–one estimate says anywhere from 1,000 to 10,000 years. Whatever the time frame, anthropogenic climate change is a fact–humans are speeding up this process.
For all of these maps, I am not portraying any sea level higher than what is possible. The IPCC has estimated that the total rise would be about 66 meters.
