Scientists have proven that the environment is changing. Gradual sea level rise is already affecting lives throughout Marin County, not just the waterfront communities. Marin can expect billions in financial losses as bay and ocean waters rise a predicted 3 feet by the year 2100 and overflow the existing levee structure. The County recognizes that the slow-moving emergency needs to be addressed now and is aggressively promoting public education and adaptation measures. In addition to addressing sea-level rise, the Marin County Climate Action Plan reduces greenhouse gas emissions and encourages all forms of sustainability, such as zero waste, energy efficiency, water-saving features and more.
