This is a press release from the Lost Coast Interpretive Association:
Sea Level Rise: A Slow Motion Flood is the topic of a free lecture by Michael Furniss, sponsored by Lost Coast Interpretive association on Sunday, December 3rd at 3 pm at the Redwood Playhouse in Garberville.
Come learn about how sea level works, why it matters, what we may expect, and what you can do. During the last 6,000 years, earth has enjoyed a period of stable sea level and a stable climate. This stable period is now dramatically ending due to climate change: we are in the midst of a “slow-motion flood.” What does this mean for Humboldt County, and other coastal communities across the globe?

He is broadly educated and worked for the US Forest Service for 33 years where he won a number of awards. He is currently the principal at M.J. Furniss and Associates.
