It also looks good when you turn it upside down. The water becomes a slightly rough cloudscape seen from underneath (out of a plane), but it still works

If you like the sea, you'll love it as it spreads over more and more of the planet. Will our descendants live in floating cities?

I think they already made a film out of that.

There are advantages and problems with more water coverage, depending on whether it is salt water or drinkable and flat or wavy.

Are you thinking of Kevin Costner's "Waterworld"?

Or "Noah"? smiley - biggrin

I remember Hongkong in 1989. So many people living in houseboats in the harbor.

Waterworld was what came to my mind, but Noah surely fits the bill.


I, for one, would have to switch from automotive to marine engineering to stay afloat.

I remember reading a review of a novel in which the ocean rises so much that the only spots above water are the mountains.

smiley - rofl According to my uncle in Mississippi, you're on high ground, Caiman. My sisters were horrified when he proudly said, 'We're safe from flooding here, We're 9 feet above sea level!'

As I write this, I'm about 1500 feet above sea level, and 500 above the Nighthoover River. smiley - laugh

Tackling climate change is important for all of us. We don't want the low countries drowning, and the high territories are sick and tired of all the freaky weather.

I'm about 80 feet above sea level. My brother and sister are about 700 feet. I pray that icecap melting doesn't speed up too much. If a big enough chunk of Antarctica broke off and melted, I could be living in beach front real estate.

The Nighthoover River is not in my Rand McNally atlas. smiley - winkeye
