Or the tsunami that crashed into the Opera House in the promotional material for The Day After Tomorrow.
Some of this shit is around the corner. Remember how huge storms lashed the east coast of Australia earlier this month and reminded everyone that our coastal lifestyle is under serious fucking threat?
Well now there's a website that shows you how rising sea levels could impact Australia's coastline.
It's a fun tool and we tried it. For our example, here is prime minister Malcolm Turnbull's stately manor, which sits directly on the water at Point Piper in Sydney's eastern suburbs.
