Swelling Seas

“The Submarine,” by Peter Sis.

New research suggests that emissions, primarily from the burning of fossil fuels, are causing the ocean to rise at the fastest rate in the last 2,800 years—since the founding of ancient Rome.

In this piece of subway car art, Peter Sis has visualized Manhattan as a green submarine. Perhaps this is a glimpse of the future. With the seas, steadily swelling, this slender island could well turn into a marine reef.
