SF+200′ sea level rise
June 7, 2072 (AP), Northern California Association of City States:
The NCCS (Northern California Coast Survey) has updated their baseline topographic map of the San Francisco Archipelago. It reflects the new coastline resulting from the unexpectedly rapid disintegration of the East Antarctic ice sheet and sea levels finally hitting the 200′ mark (compared to the 2012 datum).
This poster, designed by centenarians Brian Stokle and Burrito Justice, is available in three sizes (note: adjusted to 2012 dollars, and old-style American measurements – please double-blink to convert).
(Note: default shipping is via 12 hour pneumatic tube from Zazzle’s underwater Redwood City printing facility.)
Note this should not be used for navigational, construction or underwater recovery purposes. The street map, previously delayed due to budget restrictions due to the construction of the new Norcal Capitol building on the Fresno shoreline, is now available:
It is available in the following two-dimensional poster form factors from Zazzle:
All these prints are also available in a pseudo three-dimensional stretched canvas print.
This week’s headlines in SFCurbistGate:
- Given their role in maintaining emergency transportation during Meltwater Pulse 3A, it was surprising that taco boats were ever restricted. Thankfully a liberalized permit system is expected to be in place by the end of hurricane season.
- Noe Shoals residents vow to stop any port in their area bigger than a 40 boat small boat/fisherman fleet marina.
- Bernal Isle residents bemoan the design of the Cortland-Chernery street bridge, and worry that the influx of new visitors will threaten the “unique” character of the island.
- Debate over where to build new container port continues — Geneva/Muni Yards or Divisidero Harbor?
- Lawsuits continue over the ill-conceived levelling of San Bruno Mountain to 150′ in 2045.
- The Board of Supervisors agreed to extend Twitter’s tax break if they build their new 110 storey corporate headquarters on the disadvantaged Nob Island.
- Sea trials of the NCSS Ed Lee continue out of the Presidio Sub Base. The first of the Sutro-class algae-diesel attack subs is expected to contain the southern incursions of the Vancouver Island-Cascadia Alliance and neutralize the Orange County drone fleet to Port Fullerton.
- The bond measure for a new multipurpose floating sports stadium anchored on Alcatraz is expected to fail in next week’s referendum. Meanwhile, the 49ers consider a move to Santa Cruz.
- A new study has revealed that the on-time statistics for Muni’s fleet of sea buses have been exaggerated since 2064 — average speed is 20 mph, not 20 knots.
