Increasing graphs with red rising faster than blue

During the early 2000s, the tidal gage at Chesapeake Bay Bridge, Virginia, experienced around 7–10 days of high-tide flooding per year. If emissions of heat-trapping gases continue increasing (red shading), the location is projected to see high-tide floods every day of the year by the end of the century. If emissions are dramatically reduced (blue shading), the area is projected to see around 300 days with high-tide flooding per year.
