Online game explores sea level rise concerns
An online Los Angeles Times article, posted 7/7/2019, describes the favorable weather of “sea level rise suppression” which has encouraged waterfront development.
Conditions are likely to change. The article reports that sea level rise has been less than 9 inches over the past century. By the year 2100, that could exceed 9 feet. An online game accompanying the article presents the challenge of a 3-foot sea rise within 30 years. It interactively explains benefits and consequences of current options for protecting oceanfront homes and businesses.
To explore some of the options and learn what might happen based on those choices, take a few minutes and try the online game from LATimes.com.
