Flooding Simulator

Now, I don’t want to start a big climate change debate here, but check out this very interesting flood simulator of what could happen to major seaboard cities if the ocean level climbed 25 feet!.

It goes without saying that New Orleans and Miami would both be 100% flood as they were built either at or below sea level.    Notice that Galveston is completely under water at 25 sea level rise, but Houston is only 5% underwater.

Now, is this possible in the immediate future?   Scientists believe that it would take centuries for this to happen as the ice sheets respond slowly to global warming.
