The History and Future of a Rising Sea

On today’s show Mitch Jeserich speaks to Brian Fagan, anthropologist and author of the book The Attacking Ocean. The sea level started rising again 150 years ago and with the onset of the 20th century it rises to an unprecedented level.

    I heard this today (3/6/17) on KPFK, I guess they replayed it. It was a fantastic show and I learned many horrifying but important to know facts about how sea level rise is rapidly changing our world. And yet our leaders do nothing. Instead of Trump’s wall, it’s a sea wall that’s going to be needed – a completely unsustainable solution of course.
