Raleigh ==> Tallahassee

Wow, this map is so cool and so disturbing at the same time.  Based on the latest climate change research it estimates the nearest U.S. city climate match for 2080 under worst case and more moderate climate change scenarios.  More about it here.  For example, in the high emissions estimate, Raleigh’s 2080 climate will basically be like present-day Tallahassee, Florida.  The reduced emissions forecast puts us at Natchitoches, LA, which somehow sounds worse.  Anyway, pretty fascinating stuff– check it out!
