Underground Ecocriticism 6

Jenny Kerber. " 'Neither Dead Nor Alive but Suitably Commemorated': Liquid Topographies of the St. Lawrence Seaway."
Sea water flooding in An Inconvenient Truth uncannily prophetic of the recent inundation of New York.
The World without Us. Weisman doesn't say how the human vanishing will occur.
The Rheostatics, speculative Canada flooded (album 2067).
Beaver in stamp. Three penny beaver stamp of 1851.
Such events have already happened, these inundations.
Changing lake to make Highway 2.
Redrawing of borders of water and land. Flooded areas. Sense of homelessness.
Reconfiguring relationships to memory.
Introduction of instability into existing systems.
Development of smuggling in the region.
Suspension of time.
