Global warming and potential flooding maps

Happy Easter all.

It seems like we're getting a steady stream of scientific reports on global warming (NOTE the term climate change masks the reality that the world is becoming warmer) and its potential impacts on human settlements. The list below from and elsewhere shows what areas in the world will be adversely affected should the poles and ice caps melt due to global warming. Asia may be hit hard.

Some of these maps were made by enthusiasts so the accuracy has some issues. Nevertheless, nice to know and ponder on.
