"With six feet of sea-level rise, South Florida is toast."

Sea-level rise is not a hypothetical disaster. It is a physical fact of life on a warming planet, the basic dynamics of which even a child can understand: Heat melts ice.
Matt pennington's insight:

With the gradual rising of the Earth temperature, ice bergs and ice sheets in Antarctica and Greenland are melting, this is causing sea level to rise. 6 feet of sea rise will be fatal to Florida.

Outside of paying for flood insurance, Wilborn isn't planning for sea-level rise.
Matt pennington's insight:

This is a very big problem as the sea will eventually rise so much that everyone will have to evacuate due to flooding of their houses, businesses etc. The flooding will cost a lot of money in damages.
