Climate change has been a topic of debate for years and while many would agree that more needs to be done to address the issue, others may have a tougher time visualizing just how serious it could be if ignored.

To help illustrate the impact that rising sea levels could have on the world as we know it today, a pair of marketing agencies have created an interactive website called World Under Water ( http://worldunderwater.org/#/ ). The site is essentially a modified version of Google Street View that shows what some of the worlds largest cities would look like under six feet of water.

As mentioned, the site is supposed to show what cities would look like if sea levels rose just six feet this century but its not terribly accurate. Either way, its pretty interesting to see places like New York City, London and Dubai submerged in water.
