New 10 foot sea level rise map from Climate Central

Just noticed that this 10-foot rise map of Santa Barbara looks a lot like the 7 meter map we made for Lightblueline. ┬áIt turns out that we took the mean tide line, while the best practice is to take the lesser-highest annual tide as the basis for the map. Take a look…

NOTE for our real-estate sales friends, this map’s data is all about lost property value :-).

NOTE for everyone: James Hansen and others have published a paper (in the process of being openly peer-reviewed) that argues the possibility of a 10-foot rise by 2050.
