In the News: UOG climate center lead talks sea-level rise projections
Romina King, University of Guam lead for the Pacific Islands Climate Adaptation Science Center, appeared on Newstalk K57's DataHub show to provide input on a recent report from the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration that projects a 10- to 12-inch rise in sea level along U.S. coastlines by 2050. The radio segment aired on March 2, 2022.
King's discussion with show host Tyrone Taitano, who is also the director of Guam's Bureau of Statistics and Plans, focused on the indicators and potential impacts from this projection and what it means for Guam. King helped break down relative sea-level rise from a local perspective and pointed to some adaptation efforts to build resilience to sea-level rise impacts.
King is the co-chairperson of Guam’s Climate Change Resiliency Commission. In the segment, she is joined by CCRC Chair Evangeline Lujan.
