Soggy London Mapped

“Projecting sea level rise is problematic. A temperature increase of at least 1°C is pretty inevitable in our lifetime, optimistically low in fact, but other factors make it difficult to predict how this might equate to water levels. If some peoples’ projections come true and temperatures increase by 3°C by 2050, the Greenland ice sheet will melt, causing a probable 6m sea level rise. Battersea would be completely submerged, as well as the area from Camberwell to Rotherhithe, and also a scary amount of the Thames Gateway.”
