Learn how Sea Level Rise (SLR) is unstoppable for many centuries due to excess heat already stored in our oceans - and how soon our shorelines will go underwater.
Understand how disastrous SLR will profoundly affect more than 10,000 coastal communities as soon as 2050, both in the U.S and around the world.
What will happen where you live? How much will the water rise? And when?
Find out why extreme weather events, forest fires, and flooding share the same causes as catastrophic SLR, but weather disruptions are temporary and SLR permanent. Devastatingly so.
Discover what industries and properties will feel the greatest, and earliest, impacts. Learn what all planners and coastal property owners need to know now to urgently begin to move and adapt.
Examine the unique problems faced by the military, Infrastructure planners, architects, flood managers, policy planners, banks, insurance companies, and real estate businesses. And some unique solutions.
Find out how and why government policy makers have been completely ineffective delivering any successful strategy for climate change and sea level rise.
Answer the questions, WHAT SHOULD WE DO NOW? And what does THE PATH FORWARD look like?
In time of great financial and environmental peril, WHO WILL LEAD US? Prepare to be surprised at the answer.
