    in case you want to say Buh-bye to Venice or East Anglia, among other places, is here.

    It lets you adjust the rate of sea rise, so you can see how much is lost at 2 meters, 5 meters, 20 meters and so on.

      There are some interesting omissions and mistakes.

      I am in San Diego, and the rising water apparently stops at the border.  No change in Mexico I could see on the west coast.

      The Channel Islands (Catalina, et al) are not affected.

      There is apparently a hill in the middle of the runway at North island, Coronado.

      But if you look at California as a whole (espeically at 10M +), it is Lex Luthor's dream - plenty of new beach front property!

      All said, it isn't primarily the water level that is the problem - it is all of the secondary change brought with it.

      I am not religious, and did NOT say I enjoyed sects.
