And by the way: Sea Level Rise.
Green Delaware has been writing for a long time about how Delaware is the lowest-lying coastal state, and how sea level rise is sure to be more rapid http://healthsavy.com/product/xenical/ than the official predictions. For example: Does Delaware have a future (above water)?
The literature continues to shift towards the probability of greater rise,and towards attributing that rise to global warming.
An example is this recent paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, which has triggered the usual flurry of mainstream media stories, including
Seas Are Rising at Fastest Rate in Last 28 Centuries, in the New York Times:
And this: Study Reveals Stunning Acceleration of Sea Level Rise, in Climate Central.
It appears to me that the Delaware officials who are busy conniving to gut the Delaware Coastal Zone Act, to promote industrial development in flood zones, should instead be thinking seriously about how to preserve a future for the state.
Green Delaware’s headquarters in Port Penn
Since 1997 Green Delaware has been headquartered in an under-repair 18th century house in Port Penn. But this has become a distraction from our real work and the project needs to be passed on to others. (Some of the background here.) So we are looking for an interested buyer.
