Editorial: Southeast Florida must head off effects of climate... |

The Palm Beach Post's Randy Schultz reminds us of the impacts of climate change that we can expect to experience in south Florida. The Seven50 planning process is wrapping up, and no, it is not part of Agenda 21, or Area 51. From the editorial:
On Jan. 15, the last Seven50 meeting will take place in Fort Lauderdale. Seven50 began as an effort by the seven counties from Indian River through Monroe to plan as a region for the next 50 years, financed with money from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and local grants. Issues include transportation, economic development and climate change, building off the plan crafted in October 2012 as part of the Southeast Florida Regional Climate Change Compact.
