The "Lost Coast" might not stay lost for long.  Especially when the rest of the country realizes that California's northwest coast might have an easier time with the effects of climate change. 

Effects will be felt, says Michael Furniss at Humboldt State University, but temperatures will generally be cooler than anywhere else in California.  He lays out his findings in a visit to The Exchange, hastening to add that he's talking about the difference between getting hit by a motorbike and getting hit by a truck, metaphorically.
