Vancouver sea level rise

Our Watery Coastal Futures

In Climate, News by

This interactive map by Climate Central shows how sea-level rise will impact coastal areas around the globe with varying degrees of temperature increases. These rises will not be immediate, but what we “lock in” if we let climate change continue unchecked. Even at 2 degrees Celsius, the impacts are enormous. Little Blue Marble is based in Vancouver, BC, Canada, and as you can see in the embedded map below, large swaths of Metro Vancouver will be underwater eventually.

If you live on or near a coast (river deltas are also impacted a surprisingly long way inland), check out the full-featured map for a glimpse of what’s coming, potentially in your children’s or grandchildren’s lifetimes.
