"This chilling series of images give an alarming projection of how some of America’s most famous tourism destinations could look in the future if scientists predictions about the effects of global warming prove correct," reports David Mccormack.

"Pittsburgh-based researcher and artist Nickolay Lamm, 24, has created the shocking photo illustrations which show many of American’s most iconic destinations including the Washington Monument, Statue of Liberty and Miami’s South Beach submerged in up to 25 feet of water."

"It could take several centuries for sea levels to rise to that level but Lamm hopes his work will raise public awareness about the very real threat of global warming today, reports StorageFront."
