In December 2019, the Southeast Florida Regional Climate Compact released its latest unified sea level rise projections, and the results are frightening. One expert says sea level is now rising one inch every three years. Flooding is certain to increase, even without increased rainfall. There is no doubt that temperature is increasing, as are the number of severe weather events.
Also, resources like water and other precious materials we need to live are limited and we need to be mindful of this fact. The City aspires to serve as an example to our residents and businesses to conserve, use, reuse and recycle everything possible. Carbon in the atmosphere is posing a real threat to humanity and we have to do our part to reduce that threat.
