Three feet, possibly,” said David Enfield, a climatologist with the University of Miami and the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration. “As an extreme -- if for example we see an unexpected acceleration of the melting ice in Greenland and Antarctica, something else we’re not observing -- we could be seeing six feet by the end of the century.”</span></p> Wed, 13 Nov 2013 12:00:23 +0000 Kenny Malone 23430 at http://blog.wlrn.org What To Make Of All Those Sea-Level Rise Projections Climate Change Could Ruin Snorkeling And Fishing In Florida http://blog.wlrn.org/post/climate-change-could-ruin-snorkeling-and-fishing-florida <p>The future of some of Florida's smallest and most seldom seen inhabitants is under threat from climate change, and that could spell big trouble further up the food chain, scientists say. South Florida's coral and algae populations are declining as ocean temperatures rise and there's an economic factor to consider, according to researchers who study the coastal underwater ecosystems.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 11 Mar 2013 11:01:04 +0000 Tricia Woolfenden 10621 at http://blog.wlrn.org Climate Change Could Ruin Snorkeling And Fishing In Florida
