Today's session was given largely to two briefings on the local impact of a six-inch to one-foot rise in sea levels -- a strong probability within the lifetime of this blog's younger readers. I haven't time to elaborate today, but if you want to know more, click here and look for Volume 2 for South Florida. And if you missed it, here's my initial article.
