Future of Our Coastline 23 hours ago
Sea LevelThe Future of Our Coastline "
Belief in climate change is optional,
but participation is mandatory.”

Sea Level rise. Despite one’s personal beliefs about whether climate change is caused by humans or simply part of the Earth’s natural cycle, the water is rising, and many scientists are predicting that it’s going to get much worse before it gets better. Nowhere is this more important than for those of us who live on a barrier island, and some coastal communities are already incorporating strategies on how to deal with it in their town’s comprehensive plans.

In May, the Florida Coastal and Ocean Coalition and the Lee County Chapter of the League of Women Voters hosted a ‘Sea Level Rise Summit’ at Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) where noted speakers from throughout the state gave presentations on topics related to sea level rise.
