New York City Abandoned After Rise In Sea Levels

(via) Short film “Two °C – New York City” imagines what the American coastal metropolis of New York would look like following a rise in global sea levels. From the original French (and Google Translate):

“What would New York look like if there was a rise in water? It is this simulation that we wanted to represent in this short film. The realization was a technical exercise, but also gives a warning message in relation to global warming. The place of Man in our society is one of the main themes of our work, with the theme of emptiness and abandonment, convinced of the anthropic impact on the environment. The global warming that we point out here by the rise of water is only one brick of all the environmental degradations among which are found, among others, the pollution of air and water, impoverishment, soil depletion and resource depletion.”

Dig the Victor Hugo quote at the end: “It’s sad to think that nature speaks but mankind doesn’t listen.”
