Bay of Ballard? What would happen if all ice sheets melted and flooded Seattle

Posted by Geeky Swedes on January 17th, 2014

What would happen if all the world’s ice sheets melted, raising the ocean by 240 feet? UW planner Jeff Linn created a Seattle map that illustrates the new geography, playfully renaming different parts of the city. Here’s a look at the northern neighborhoods:
Of course, it’s an extremely unlikely scenario, at least anytime soon — Linn says one estimate is 5,000 years — and he admits he created the map “as a playful piece.” But he told the Seattle Times, “I think there’s definitely a warning here for people as to what could actually happen to the city.”

Regardless of your beliefs on climate change, the map is an entertaining way to view the topography of Seattle. Our house, by the way, would be floating in the Bay of Ballard, and we can only imagine the soaring property values on the Loyal Headlands and Phinney Peninsula.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
