What about sea level rise?

There is a lot of concern about the impact of sea level rise on the Peninsula due to Climate Change. Although Climate Change is a very real threat and sea level rise could potentially be devastating to Humboldt Bay, the Peninsula is at actually at less risk than other larger communities. Using this interactive tool developed by the NOAA you can see the effects of sea level rise, in various local scenarios and time-frames, on Humboldt Bay. Not only is the Peninsula at less risk that the surrounding communities, but the Samoa Peninsula EIFD can actually be used to reduce the impacts. An EIFD can fund infrastructure which specifically mitigates climate change including sea level rise.
