Meet the Taco Boat

In a total disaster scenario involving the melting of the entirety of Antarctica and a 200-foot sea-level rise, San Francisco would become an archipelago crisscrossed by Victorians on pontoons and fed by taco boats (at a recurring event presumably rebranded Off the Marine Charts). This is the fantastical scenario envisioned by cartographer Brian Stokle and "the entity behind Burrito Justice" (quoth CityLab) in a map that's part of SPUR's current "Urban Cartography" show. Aquaphiles take note: Sea levels are expected to rise by just (!) three feet by century's end. [CityLab; previously]
