On Friday and Saturday at St. Petersburg College in Seminole, dozens of policy-makers, scientists and residents talked about a growing concern in Pinellas County: sea-level rise.

A University of Miami geologist who spoke Friday, Harold Wanless, had some alarming things to say about the magnitude and speed of sea-level rise.

My guest on the phone was Lance Long, a professor of environmental law and environmental advocacy at Stetson University College of Law. Long participated in the two-day meeting on sea-level rise at SPC.
