Are our coastal business communities threatened by rising seas?


Coastal communities have been warned about the likelihood of sea level rise, increased hurricane intensity, and devastating storm surge.

What is the cause of this concern? How bad could it be? What can be done?

Hear the answers from experts and join in the discussion. Learn about the science of climate change, research on past and present sea level rise and future predictions. The potential economic consequences of rising seas and the economic benefits of investing in renewable energy will be presented. Hear how some local governments are making plans to protect coastal small business and residential communities from future rising sea levels.
