This Is Your City on Global Warming

Blogger Alex Tingle has posted a hack of Google Maps that demonstrates the effects of rising sea levels. This is what Wilmington would look like like if the sea rose 7 meters:
The flooded areas include the Eastside, Northeast, Southbridge and Browntown neighborhoods, the Christina River waterfront, I-95, I-495, the Amtrak Station, the Port of Wilmington and the city's wastewater treatment plant, which serves more than half of Delaware's population.
