I came across a very cool use of Google Maps via a comments thread on Pharyngula today. Flood Maps lets you see how rising sea levels are projected to alter the coastline around the world.
My house looks like it will be just fine, even with a 14m rise in the sea level. My office will be right on the beach, which will no doubt improve the quality of our monthly lunchtime BBQs. It's lucky that life here will be so good, as I won't be able to leave - the airport and most of the bridges will be gone.
The long climb up the hill on my daily cycle ride homewards suddenly seems so much more appealing. Now I just need to work on buying that boat.
