Ever wondered what the world would look like if Al Gore is right? Well now you can drown entire cities :thumbsup:

Wellington with a sea level rise of 14 metres: http://flood.firetree.net/?ll=-41.3067, ... 8&z=4&m=14

Christchurch with a sea level rise of 14 metres: http://flood.firetree.net/?ll=-43.5319, ... 0&z=5&m=14 :blink:

Auckland with a sea level rise of 14 metres: http://flood.firetree.net/?ll=-36.8835, ... 4&z=6&m=14

At a 14 metre rise...

The Coromandal Peninsula gets a hell of lot longer: http://flood.firetree.net/?ll=-37.1143, ... 2&z=8&m=14

Half of Shannon underwater - the rest becomes beachfront property: http://flood.firetree.net/?ll=-40.5458, ... 1&z=4&m=14

Mosgiel gets it's own harbour: http://flood.firetree.net/?ll=-45.9435, ... 0&z=7&m=14

Welcome to Bluff Island, off the south coast of the noticeable shorter South Island: http://flood.firetree.net/?ll=-46.4322, ... 4&z=7&m=14

No one really knows. Not much, over a very long time probably. Quick run to the hills.

Yep - it really depends who you're listening too and which theory/ scenario you subscribe to. Could be a few centimetres over quite a few decades, could be quite a few metres over a few years (if, say the whole of Greenland suddenly melts along with the land-locked ice sheet parts of Antarctica.)

The sea levels have been gradually rising at around 2 millimetres a year for a while now if that makes you feel any better :)
