"Retrotopia 2065" Second Draft of the Map.

Here's the second draft of the map I posted yesterday.

Other commenters remarked on Mr. Greer's big batch of tips he addressed to me and in turn, Mr. Greer came out with some more tips:
Ed-M, the Atlantic Republic is the present-day states of New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland, with the eastern (not western) panhandle of West Virginia; Washington DC is technically Atlantic territory but it's basically a ruin inhabited by squatters. West Canada is BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, the Northwest Territories and the Yukon Territory; Nunavut, I should have said, is an independent nation, having united with Kalaallit Nunaat (aka Greenland) in 2042. There's also the Free City of Chicago, which is an independent (and gaudily corrupt) nation, and consists of Cook County. I think that's it!
So I made some changes, but I kept the 2 degrees' Centigrade seal level rise for the East and Gulf Coasts, because the author of the Dredd Blogg has indicated that these coasts will get the worst of the sea-level rises. For example, Miami-Dade and Fort Lauderdale have a solid foot of risen sea level compared with the global eight inches since 1870, today!. Therefore for a global six feet, expect between ten and twenty feet sea level rise for the two shorelines.

For proof, click on the Dredd Blog tag and you'll be directed to his Post Series page. Scroll down to EXTINCTION (Yes, it is real) and then to various series on SEA LEVEL CHANGE. You'll find many posts under these topics that show that sea-level rise from global warming is not uniform, but varies all over the planet -- another component of global weirding.  For example, one post in particular discusses past and future sea level rise around Miami (click here).
