  • San Francisco Archipelago (Dateline 2072)

    “With the surprising acceleration of sea level rise due to the melting of
    both the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets over the past decade, the San Francisco canal system
    was officially abandoned this week. Additional ferry service has been
    announced between the new major islands of the San Franciscan
    Archipelago while the boring machines make progress under the Van Ness
    Passage and Richmond Pass for new transit tunnels.”
