29 Feb Raising the alarm over sea level rise
Over the last year, I’ve spoken about coastal concerns and helped to stand up a citizen driven sea level rise task force. The task force was established to explore ways to prepare for what has become in the minds of most inevitable – rising seas. Our neighbors in Charleston have a much larger challenge which they are seeking to address. I am hoping that while working together we will share strategies that can be mutually helpful. The small movement that began in Beaufort – the first city to engage its public in exploring the challenges and answers – is spreading. This is a good thing and we should offer to work with our neighbors who have similar challenges.
