Flooding in the Sunshine: Ways that South Florida Residents are Fighting the Current Together

In Florida, we heard from women who are living with the realities of climate change. Karina has concerns for her family, friends and community as they deal with the very real impact sea level rise is having on Miami right now. She is working on solutions with women across the region, like the Moms Clean Air Force and Caroline Lewis of the CLEO Institute, to drive climate change action through engagement and education.

 

This is our new normal here.

This is sea level rise. This is climate change.

Here. Now.

Some of the studies that are coming out are saying by the year 2030 we're going to have 100 plus days of this happening in South Florida.

I grew up in South Florida,

it wasn't like this.
