Planning Ahead...

You should learn as much as possible about it.

How can I get anyone interested in something that might happen 50 or 100 years from now?

Today's lifestyle doesn't leave time for what's going to happen five minutes from now.

Slack off for one second and someone will get ahead.

There's just no time for long range speculation, even when you know it's good for you.

How about if I tell you that you are already paying for it, and the price is going up by the day.

In fact, your children, and your children's children will still be paying for it, with ever increasing prices.

What is it?

it is the threat of Sea Level Rise.

Forget the cute apps showing a flooded world.

We don't need Biblical inundation to mess up the works.

If The Ocean rises two feet, The Shoreline will be overwhelmed.

That may happen by the end of this century, depending on so many factors that it is impossible to project a definitive measurement.

But, science indicates that two feet by 2100 is a realistic expectation.

Two feet of water on top of current high tide will flood commercial ports everywhere on Earth.

Docks will be under water.

Ships will not be able to load or unload.

Cranes, trucks, and people don't function under water.

These are some of the reasons we must pay attention to Sea Level Rise.

Governments and Industry are planning for the worst case scenario.

We are going to pay for the decisions made by Governments and Industry...right or wrong.
