Rising Tides

This is complete nonsense, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

Even if the current sea level of the world’s oceans rose 14 meters, Atlanta would be high and dry. So if you’re one of those SUV-driving global warming deniers you can feel safe in the knowledge that other people will drown for your sins. ;-)

You can try out the cool Google Maps mashup yourself (more info here).

    What happens if you had a Gore sticker on your SUV? Does your head just explode, or are your sins preemptively atoned?

    I don’t actually work in the sin forgiveness department.

    Submit a written request, and I’ll see what I can do.

    I for one will welcome the new ocean view from my high rise condo in Atlanta.

    yeah atlanta’s only real geological problem is water supply. And even that is more of a problem for people (and animals and plants i guess) downriver from us.

    Will do Seth.
    But – how much does the water need to rise to give Atlanta a beach? We could be the new Miami!
