Effects of Global Warming


Here's a great use of Google Maps to show the effects of global warming and the rise in the sea levels.

Hong Kong with 14m rise. (click on 'Flood SAT', there's no maps for HK.)

What's surprising to me is how little Hong Kong island is affected. Victoria Park, Tamar and a lot of the reclaimed land to the north of the island is gone, but Central, Wanchai, Causeway and North Point are pretty unscathed. Kowloon, though is inundated.

I've nearly always lived on higher ground in Hong Kong, and I'm certainly going to keep it that way!
