Ever wondered what New York, London, Paris, Dubai or even your home town might look like when sea levels rise? World Under Water by Carbon Story uses Google's Street View to do just that.

The mod shows how the streets of the world will look if sea levels continue to rise. Simply type in your address, and you can see how things might look. In a word: bad.


There's a catch, though: the software assumes that every location is at the same elevation. That's a shame, because it wouldn't have been hard to factor in different altitudes. But, still, the message is a strong and clear one: we need to work to act to halt climate change, and soon. [World Under Water via HuffPost]
