U.S. Senator Bill Nelson was in town Thursday joined by fellow U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island and U.S. Rep. Corinne Brown to talk climate change and present a few alarming local statistics.
“With a two or three-foot sea-level rise, most of Florida—75 percent of its population—will be underwater. That’s how serious this is,” Nelson said.
Nelson said he’d been at a Senate Commerce Committee meeting in Miami Beach earlier this week discussing the data.
