Warming Wednesdays: a mayor with a real problem on his hands

Watch Rising tide on PBS. See more from Need To Know.

My partner's father grew up in Norfolk, VA. I had a naval uncle who was stationed there. A family friend retired there. It's hard to think of the city being so threatened by rising seas.

This measured video offers a calm, reasoned picture of what rising seas will mean to coastal communities in coming decades.

Despite every other legitimate concern, we cannot ignore that our economic and social system is rapidly making the planet less habitable. So I will be posting "Warming Wednesdays" -- unpleasant reminders of an inconvenient truth. H/t beach babe in fl.
