How Sea Level Rise in South Florida Could Drown Us in North Florida

How sea level rise in south florida could drown us in north florida

The Coming Reality of Sea Level Rise: Too Fast, Too Soon: Meaningful Solutions & Citizen Action

Presented by Renowned Climate Scientist Harold Wanless, Ph.D., former chair of the Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Miami.

When will North Florida start feeling the ripple effect of sea level rise in South Florida? Can Alachua County absorb the massive waves of displaced Floridians heading north in the coming decades? What’s being done about sea level rise and other effects of climate change in our state and our country—and what can we as individuals do to make a difference?

“The problem is, you first must understand the reality of what is before us, the urgency with which adaptations will be needed, and the critical mitigations that must be tackled.

“The goal of my talks and writings is to provide the future climate reality clearly so that
individuals and communities can have a realistic hope and can plan what to do individually and collectively to make a difference,” Harold Wanless, Ph.D.

Don’t miss this wake-up call and deep dive by a respected expert in this critical field.

Dr. Wanless will be presenting this program at 12:45pm and again at 5:4pm on June 15th.

You can attend either in-person or via Zoom. The program is free but you must register.
