The Very Real Sea-Level Rise At Humboldt Bay
Humboldt Bay gets two strikes against it when it comes to sea level rise: the Pacific is just a little higher each year, and the land around the bay is just a little lower, thanks to plate tectonics.

We get a preview in this chat about what the future might bring.
