News of the Day

Hi, this is Sean and it is news of the day. The east coast is sinking. New satellite based research reveals how land along the coast is slumping into the ocean, compounding the danger for global sea level rise, a major culprit. It is over pumping of the groundwater to stabilize early buildings. In Boston, wood pilings were driven into the water lodged earth where groundwater preserved the structures. Depletion of those air fires has exposed the wood to air, in some cases causing the foundations to rot

I think dramatic and drastic change happens every single year in nature. And to expect that slightly more dramatic change can't happen semiconsistently is, I think, kind of crazy. But that's not to say that it's not going to affect our way of living and just how we go through life on a day to day basis. So thanks for sharing this really, really interesting fact. I appreciate you taking the time to talk about it
