Florida Keys = Venice, Italy?

University of Miami geologist Harold Wanless, gave a presentation about rising sea level to an audience of  100 Keys residents at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park last week. The basic points are that Since 1930, sea level in South Florida has risen nine inches. That’s eight times more than the previous 2,000 years. Wanless said not to think of your investment in coastal real estate as something you will be able to hand down to your grandchildren.
