Global warming mug: add coffee, lose a landmass

Global_warming_mugYes, it’s low tech, but since I just reduced my carbon footprint last week, I thought it appropriate. [Personal note: I’ve stopped driving 8 miles round trip daily for my WaWa coffee; I now buy bags of their coffee and make it at home. Before you judge me: the 8 mile trip was done via a Hybrid vehicle ;)] Firebox sells this $12 coffee mug that has a map of the globe on the outside. When you fill the mug with hot coffee or the warm beverage of your choice, the map changes to show the expected sea level rise due to global warming.
