Discussing the rise of the projected sea levels

The CLEO Institute in collaboration with The Good Government Initiative, Florida Atlantic University’s Center for Environmental Studies, the Union of Concerned Scientists and World Resources Institute, are hosting a climate leadership training for elected officials. Entitled "Sea Level Rise in Florida: Meeting the Needs of Your Constituents," will take place on January 24. 

Hosted at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, this comprehensive workshop invites elected state and local leaders to better serve the public in preparing for climate resilience. 

Florida's projections for the next 20 years of sea level rise present an urgent and complex challenge for municipalities, agencies and decision makers. Southeast Florida's unique location and geology require significant and innovative adaptations as sea level rises. As state and local leaders prepare to respond to sea level rise related issues, they have expressed a need for briefings, training and resources that will aid them in making timely decisions. In response to this need, the program partners have developed this sea level rise workshop for South Florida's decision makers. The presenters include scientists from The Florida Climate Institute and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, local climate change experts, state officials tasked with sea level rise adaptation, and climate change education and outreach experts.

Registrants will be surveyed before the workshop so that they can tailor the sessions to specific needs. Topics can include:
- understanding sea level rise projections;
- preparing for saltwater intrusion;
- educating constituencies about sea level rise;
- planning for municipal projects; and 
- understanding building codes and retro-fitting.

And if you believe any of this, you'd better sell your homes and get out before the market crashes.

During the past 2 years I saw Card Sound Road [East] to the light being raised twice by about 2 feet due to ocean rise, would you believe that swlip?

ahh, great, swlip is a climate change denier too. It's either believe he and Donald Trump, or the near universal agreement of scholars worldwide, who have demonstrable, empirical proof of sea level rise.

"Climate change denier"? Is that like denying the existence of Santa Claus? Do you even know what you're talking about?

I actually follow the news on the science of climate change, and guess what? The climate models cited by the global warming alarmists have been proven wrong. If a scientific model doesn't accurately predict something, then it has to be rejected.

I've also seen up close how much money there is to be made on climate alarmism. The rent-seeking has gotten so out of control that even the Europeans are abandoning "green" energy.

Seriously, if you own property in So. Fla. and believe that sea level rise will have a serious impact, you should sell while you can. I'll offer to buy at a price discounted to future value. Which, if we're all inundated, amounts to zero. I'll take a simple quit claim deed.

Watch what people do, not what they say.

Oh, and the problem with Card Sound road was subsidence - i.e., it was sinking. That happens a lot in Florida, where many roads and other structures are built on landfill.

Satelite altimitry data demonstrates empirical proof that sea level rise is occurring and increasing in rate. These measurements have been independently confirmed by coastal tidal gauge measurements. That's called reliable data.

What are you using to gather your data other than fox news?

Swlip, You'll purchase @ a discount? Ha, you don't have 2 nickels to rub together because U rhetoric [and a lot of it] translates to a no one & nothing of a personality, plus you sit around daily retorting to everything/anything, probably from your parents home after failing @ whatever you've attempted so you hide behind a keyboard & regurgitate on people who say something/anything, get a job/life. PS I'm rich, retired, aged & you're a loser.
