Why don't hey every get it right, the oceans might be rising but you should be more concern about the land sinking. I wouldn't put any money in saving it, doesn't look viable.

Noted. Thanks, Cal. Very scary. Since I quit watching network news, I don't know if this has been covered by them. Are people just in denial?

Although I'm happy to sign petitions and send letter regarding this, the people living in those areas need to really step up and make their voices heard.
