For years now we have heard about climate changes and how they will affect our planet. Scientists have warned us about rising sea levels. Thanks to Pittsburgh artists Nickolay Lamm we can now see what that impact might look like. Looking at stock photos and projection maps from Climate Central, Lamm re-created each scene as it will appear after a 25 foot rise in sea level. The only good news for us is that it will take hundreds of years for the sea levels to rise but Lamm is hoping to draw attention to the threat of climate change now before it gets worse.
