    I am in the middle of a debate with the Nature Conservancy which has partnered with GISS. Keep up the good work. I will be including some of this in my upcoming presentation in Guilford Ct on the 17 of May. It involves Coastal Resilience which appears to be nothing more than a big land grab that is to be nation wide. By applying large sea level rise they will show more land being inundated by sea level in 89years. Guilford is one of the pilot projects along with Old Saybrook and South Bay on Long Island. It is important to stop this in the bud.
