Hot Topic Review: Reality of Sea Level Rise

JOHN ENGLANDER

Reality of Sea Level Rise

A Practical Positive Approach to a Big Problem

by Kathy Panko

John EnglanderJohn Englander, Oceanographer, Consultant, and leading expert on Sea Level Rise(SLR), addressed the LWV Hot Topics Luncheon on March 21, 2018. He began by stating that SLR is a revolutionary problem. He focused on the following points:

  • What is sea level rise?
  • What do we need to do about it?
  • What can YOU do about it?

Sea level rise is an increase in global sea level as a result of an increase in the volume of water in the world’s oceans. Some people think that SLR is an environmental issue. In reality, rising sea level is an economic, land, investment, and legal liability issue. It has everything to do with …

Urgent Action: CRC

Dear Friends,
The Constitutional Review Commission (CRC) is Florida’s unique system of examining its constitution every 20 years for any revisions, amendments or changes it determines the electorate can consider to be law for the next 20 years (until 2048). It has until May 10 to submit its proposals, which go directly onto the ballot. Each proposal placed on the ballot needs 60% approval to pass. Governor Scott was in charge of forming the 37 member committee. Please go to for details:
The CRC has been conducting itself poorly: its process for public input hearings has been faulty from the start, i.e., initially, it failed to announce a hearing in Orlando until hours before it was to start,; interrupting the 3-minute time for …

The Term Assault Weapon

ASSAULT WEAPONThe term “assault weapon” is not a precise term and such imprecision undermined the effectiveness of the 1994 federal ban.  According to that ban and those in several states, AWs are defined by physical features, some of which (e.g., bayonet mounts, flash suppressors) have no impact on their dangerousness.

Gun makers can simply remove these features and the firearm is no longer considered an assault weapon but is no less dangerous in the hands of a shooter.  I have just proposed a new approach which classifies firearms according to their lethality, based on an objective scoring method.

Classified in this way, the industry can no longer get around a ban based on some cosmetic changes.  The next step is to devise an acceptable scoring method—I discuss one that …
