Florida scientists send letter on climate change

Florida scientists send letter on climate change

Rising sea levels continue to plague South Florida especially in Delray Beach.

"We're getting it seven months out of the year," says Clair Johnson on Marine Way.

Flooding is something they have to deal with it every year.

This is Murray Kantor's first year on the Intracoastal.

"Anybody who lives on the water should be concerned.

A group of Florida scientists including two from FAU say homeowners should be more than concerned.

They say sea levels could rise two feet by 2060 at a worst case scenario.

They're taking advantage of the President-Elect staying at Mar-a-Lago for the holidays. They sent a letter warning him his South Florida home could be in jeopardy from the sea levels.

In the letter they propose discussing clean energy solutions.

Murry and his family hope he listens.

"I love it here and I'd like to stay for as long as possible," said Murry.
