    BLDGBLOG had a really interesting article on these images a couple of weeks ago or so. Effectively he argued that many members of the public look at images like these and see it as an adventure, an exciting new world of flooded cities… Instead of being scared and put off, they found the whole idea exciting. What you don’t see from these images is the mass migration, wars, starvation, plagues of illnesses and natural disasters that this level of climate change would create…

    Anyway, as I say, it’s a really interesting article, definitely worth a look:
