Terrifying Gifs Imagine Sea Level Rise Consuming Miami Beach

New, 6 comments

Artist and researcher Nickolay Lamm created these haunting and rather beautiful gifs of South Beach's Ocean Drive and Lummus Park and other US cities drowning with sea level rise at 5, 12, and 25 feet. Using data from an interactive New York Times map and other sources, he wanted to see what this rise would look like in real life. Although undoubtedly scary as shit, with our turquoise blue waters these images kind of make South Beach look like an underwater wonderland.
