3C & counting

Without action, the world's temperature will rise by 3C - 5.4 F by 2100. With luck, knowing how phase transitions are exponential and not linear, the heat index could be even higher.

Fifty major cities, mostly in Asia, and at least one large nation on every continent but Australia and Antarctica are at risk. Many small island nations are threatened with near total loss of their land.

The collection of images and videos produced by the non-profit Climate Central visualize future sea level rise if the world fails to meet emissions reduction targets. The images show what areas of the world can be saved and which could be lost, taking with them the heritage and history of these coastal communities.

Remember, Lovelock warned us, Exxon deceived us ... Houston, we have a problem.
