Sea-level rise is climate change’s sleeper impact. By the end of the century, flooding could displace 80,000 homes, subject 30,000 socially vulnerable residents to daily flooding and expose bayshore communities to resurfaced toxic waste. But because the results of gradual increases in water levels are not immediately visible, these risks can slip out of sight and out of mind. How do we spread the word about these hidden but impactful consequences of climate change? Join this conversation with two journalists, who serve an essential role as expert storytellers, bringing the abstract notion of sea level rise to life.
