6.11.13 Cadiz May Disappear
Most of the province of Cadiz will disappear beneath the waves as a result of global warming, according to a study by National Geographic. The magazine has created an interactive map which shows this situation after the polar ice caps have melted, raising sea levels by 300 metres. And it will not just be Cadiz, home to our favourite wine. Much of the Spanish coastline of today will be changed. And it will not just be Spain. Cities like London and Venice will disappear, along with the Low Countries. Across the Atlantic, most of San Francisco and New York will be lost. In Africa, Cairo and Alexandria will disappear, and temperatures will rise dramatically. Losses will be similarly catastrophic in Oceania and Australia. The only good piece of news from National Geographic is that these cataclysmic events will take about 5,000 years to happen.
