SORT BY Relevancy
Reports of scientific studies and local government initiatives to deal with the challenge of swelling oceans fill the internet and traditional media daily. Technical experts dealing with sea level rise are hard at work in South Florida, California, the Carolinas, New York, Virginia and other vulnerable areas the world over.
But responsible action on sea level rise issues requires another dimension of planning, for which we have just begun.
Wall Street has a role to play too, as does your local bank and credit union. You have a personal financial role as well.
Monetary and budgeting strategies to cope with sea level rise, for the average homeowner, renter and small business owner need to be crafted today...to be ready for tomorrow.
In this episode, we explore some proposed tools and blueprints that financial institutions, consumers and governments should consider to properly plan for the near-term.
Failure to adapt your financial roadmap today will result in missed options tomorrow.
Here we cover the comments of Dr. Leonard Berry Director of the Florida Center For Environmental Studies at Florida Atlantic University and South Florida Attorney and sea level rise advocate Mitch Chester on this vital aspect of preparing for rising seas.

The July 3, 2014 issue of Rolling Stone features an incredibly compelling article by former Vice President Al Gore. Entitled, "The Turning Point," Mr. Gore stresses we will ultimately prevail over climate change...but that irreversible serious damage is taking place.
Stating there is a climate change "tunnel" and we are "well into it," Mr. Gore urges us to "put a price on climate denial in our politics." He discusses major economic trends in the climate change battle. In this show, we go one step beyond the Rolling Stone article...With regard to rising seas, I discuss how society also needs to put a value on responsible financial preparedness to protect the millions in harm's way as the oceans grow. Call it Sea Level Rise Financial Literacy.
Join host Mitch Chester for a short, but compelling look at how your level of financial understanding can get you, your family and your community, ready for the consequences of sea level rise.
In the past few days, the San Francisco Civil Grand Jury released a comprehensive and important report entitled, "Rising Sea Levels...At Our Doorstep."
In this broadcast, we explore some key points raised by the panel and its recommendations. Charged with assessing how rising sea levels "will most likely affect the City of San Francisco," and what the City is doing to address the challenge, the Grand Jury notes, "We are currently at the cusp of the future in terms of sustainability." It adds, "The threat is real; the time to act is now."
Join host Mitch Chester for a quick review of major points contained in the report.

Director Herbert Midgley created "The Rise of the Robots. Also known on YouTube as The Internet Legend, Midgley presents a motley crew of four unlikely members who fight to save the world from the rise of the robots. The takeover is possible through humankind's obsession with technology. Now only four misfits can fix the problem -- a stoner, redneck, "hottie" and intellectial. Can they stop the robots from taking over and avoid the Mayan prophecy? Or is there another part of the prophecy that might hint at what can save them all?
This is not Midgley's first film. He also directed and can be seen in "Beep" and has worked on other productions. In addition to being crew, he also is a composer and did music for "The History of Time Travel" (whose director, Ricky Kennedy, was featured on I.S. and was the A.D. on this project.) Perhaps Midgley is best known for his over 3000 videos on YouTube!
"The Rise of the Robots" was shown at the Super Geek Film Festival as part of Florida Supercon (July 3-6, 2014).
