UK government’s global warming map

Just came across an interesting bit at Jean Marc Rommes’ insightful Long View blog.  He’s spotted an interactive global warming map put out by the UK government and posts a troubling screen shot of expected global consequences with a 4 degree temperature rise and a summary of what the map program does.

In my recent New York Under Water series about the now-unstoppable 2-meter sea rise we can expect to see, that estimate is based on a conservative 2 degree temp rise. Things get a lot uglier the hotter the globe gets. See the Rommes links above for a quick look, and pointer to the UK site. Don’t know about you but I love interactive maps, even if they play with scenarios of global disaster. Maybe especially then.
