More swamp to drain: Map of flooded Washington, DC shows the upside of climate change
Following President Donald Trump’s announcement Thursday regardingthe Paris Climate Accord, quite a few newspapers showed off the disaster movie posters they’re swapping in for front pages Friday the New York Daily News even did its part for the planet by recycling HuffPo’s “Trump to Planet: Drop Dead” headline rather than writing a new one.
The real keepers, though, are the graphics released before the president’s announcement. Here’s what Washington, D.C., will look like if the worst climate change projections come true.

C'mon people, fire up the grills, get coal stoves, and drive quads with two stroke engines. We can do this!

I can still see the Senate offices. Build another coal fired power plant.
