All my Ex's Live in Texas. That (and sea level rise) 's why I hang my hat in Tennessee

Sea level rise in the Lone Star state. Hang on to your Shiner Bocks people. Galveston, though well prepared and experienced with hurricanes, will mostly be underwater in a 10 foot sea level rise scenario. Granted, subsidence and storm surge aren’t even used in these maps, so things could look a bit worse, especially with monster category 5 storms spinning toward the petrochemical capital of the world, Harris County Texas. Hopefully by that time our reliance upon fossil fuel infrastructure will have waned to the point of irrelevance.
