Following President Donald Trump’s announcement Thursday regarding the Paris Climate Accord, quite a few newspapers showed off the disaster movie posters they’re swapping in for front pages Friday — the New York Daily News even did its part for the planet by recycling HuffPo’s “Trump to Planet: Drop Dead” headline rather than writing a new one.
The real keepers, though, are the graphics released before the president’s announcement. Here’s what Washington, D.C., will look like if the worst climate change projections come true.

Somewhere, some part of the Metro will still be on fire. Always.

Fun fact: the worst climate change projections for the past 40 years have never come true.

When? Tomorrow? In 100 years? The speed is important.

C'mon people, fire up the grills, get coal stoves, and drive quads with two stroke engines. We can do this!

I can still see the Senate offices. Build another coal fired power plant.

if someone wants to sell me land futures for pennies on the dollar, where can I sign up?

The Obamas just purchased their D.C. rental for $8.1 million; they’d probably let it go for half that after seeing this map.
