FILE - A woman walks along a flooded street caused by a king tide, Saturday, Sept. 28, 2019, in Miami Beach, Fla. Low-lying neighborhoods in South Florida are vulnerable to the seasonal flooding caused by king tides. While higher seas cause much more damage when storms such as hurricanes hit the coast, they are getting to the point where it doesn’t have to storm to be a problem. High tides get larger and water flows further inland and deeper even on sunny days. (AP Photo/Lynne Sladky, File)

The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, released on Monday, repeatedly mentions Florida as an example of a place where the effects of climate change are already being felt, both economically and environmentally. The findings in the report are dire, stating that the time to act on climate change is now.
