CREATE YOUR OWN POSTCARD FROM THE FUTURE
Use your imagination (and photoshop skills) to visualize a dystopian or utopian cityscape in the year 2100... Screen grab a photo of a coastal city on google street view...
Or find one on Wikimedia Commons (look for a public domain image)
then digital composite your postcard from the future...integrating water, wild life, urban decay...or engineering solutions to the changing environment.

What will Miami, New York, Baltimore, New Orleans...look like as seas rise? Will human culture adapt and continue to inhabit these locations...

Or will everyone flee the coastal zones and move to ... Duluth?
