Tough choices aren’t coming on California’s coasts. They’re here. This story by and its presentation is so, so good and so, so alarming.
I know I've tweeted this like three times, but I'm proud to work for a newsroom that invests in journalism like this.

I'd always assumed California was less vulnerable to sea-level rise than the East Coast/Gulf because of all the beach cliffs, but ....... N O P E this is terrifying
