This is an artistâs impression of a possible Earth of the future. The polar caps have melted, and sea levels have risen around the globe by tens of metres, engulfing entire cities along coastal regions. In this particular view, we see the Americas. In South America, much of Argentina and Brazil around the Amazon basin are underwater. In North America, the Eastern Seaboard has vanished, along with it most of California in the west.
