Shifting Sands of Time


My response to an article on The Weather Channel. Of course you know the gist of this is that “Rising sea levels are going to doom the planet!” When in reality, the beaches in Santa Monica Bay (as well as other places) have never been static. The piers in the Santa Monica Bay have all…
