Sinking House in London Brings Attention to Climate Change

Wildfires. Bush fires. Droughts. Floods. Everything that scientists said would happen, is happening. And scarily, it’s faster and in cases more severe than the predictions.  To further drive the point home, Extinction Rebellion launched an installation of sorts called Sinking House, where they literally floated a prop house down the Thames, right through the heart of London. The half-submerged home was the perfect analogy for our climate catastrophe, and was a tangible example of what rising sea levels will do to places all over the globe. Via MyModernMet:
