Here's the 2030 Miami Skyline Photoshopped to Account for Dramatic Sea Level Rise and it's Horrifying

New, 11 comments

Yesterday we posted a Visualhouse rendering projecting the 2030 Miami skyline.

Curbed commenter Erik Botsford put his Photoshop skills to use and revealed what a 2030 Miami skyline would look like with a dramatic and depressing rise in sea level, with Biscayne Bay engulfing Downtown Miami and its surrounding buildings, like the American Airlines Arena. Here is an overlay of the two images.

Projections for sea-level rise are all over the place but barring some unforeseen variable or climatic disaster, our seas obviously won't be rising this quickly. Nonetheless it's a scary sight. If this website does not exist tomorrow, assume Rick Scott had it terminated.

By the way, our Photoshopping friend wants to assure you this image was altered "purely for entertainment" reasons and does not reflect an accurate projection.
