"Even small rises in sea level will have very big impact in some places, as storm surges hit coasts. If you raise the floor of a basketball court by just a few inches, you will see many more slam dunks." — Twila Moon, University of Washington
Great analogy. I am only 5'8'', so you had me excited for a moment that I might be able to slam dunk on a basketball court if we keep raising the floor. Then, I was brought back to reality that this is about climate change and sea level rise. This is very scary to think about. Thanks for posting this.
