Across South Florida, people are joining hands to address the threat they face from sea-level rise. To that list, add the editorial boards of the South Florida Sun Sentinel, Miami Herald and Palm Beach Post, along with WLRN Public Media. The media outlets have created an unprecedented collaborative, “The Invading Sea,” because the threat of sea level rise becomes more evident every year. South Florida’s major media organizations plan to use their collective voices to communicate the unrelenting threat of sea level rise, help people see what’s at stake, and engage experts, citizens, businesses and political leaders on the tough choices ahead. They believe the time is right for such a project because 2018 is a big election year in Florida with elections for the U.S. Senate, Governor, and the Florida Legislature. The editorial boards plan to ask all the candidates about sea level rise while WLRN plans an in-depth series of reports, roundtable discussions and other community engagement events.
