1. Announcing the #DrownYourTown Coastal Tour!

    #DrownYourTown is going on the (virtual) road. For the next few weeks, we’ll be visiting coastal states throughout the US, focusing on towns and cities that haven’t recieved the #DrownYourTown treatment, yet. Rather than adjusting sea levels, on this trip we’re locking in at 5 meters to provide a rough approximation of what these coastal towns could look like at high tide after the 1.4 meters of sea level rise predicted by 2100. 

    We’ve already taken a trip through California and today we’re visiting Maine for some New England-style town drowning. Check the schedule and please join in. As always, the instructions for making your own #DrownYourTown model are here: How to #DrownYourTown: a step by step guide to modeling sea level rise in Google Earth
