According to a new report released this week by the National Wildlife Federation and the Florida Wildlife Federation.

Tampa Bay stands to lose nearly all of its tidal flats and the vast majority of its salt marsh by 2100 due to sea-level rise from global warming. The reports say that Tampa Bay is among the Florida water bodies that could change dramatically under a conservative model of what rising seas and other global warming-related changes could mean for Florida’s coastal fisheries renowned for their appeal to shallow water anglers.

Jerry Karnas is Southeastern Director for the Global Warming Campaign National Wildlife Federation. We spoke to him today in the first of a 2 part interview on the report (roll tape#1 o.q.� that’s number one�)

That’s Jerry Karnas , Southeastern Director for the Global Warming Campaign National Wildlife Federation. Please join us on Monday, when we talk about what many big city mayors – though none in the Tampa Bay Area – are doing about global warming on a local level.
