Sea level rise and coastal erosion

WNYC's Brian Lehrer had on coastal experts Orrin Pilkey and Rob Young to talk about sea level rise issues that could impact the NY/NJ area. While their new book, The Rising Sea, looks at the larger issues, the radio conversation focused more on specific places like Cape May and Fire Island. Give it a listen.

Meanwhile, RealClimate presents a pretty detailed discussion about some new understandings (and questions) about the ways we measure and estimate future sea level rise.

Coastal erosion is paired up with the loss of coastline flora and fauna, I think the same attention must also be given - a holistic approach!

This is my first visit here, but I will be back soon, because I really like the way you are writing, it is so simple and honest
