WLRN-Miami Herald News reporter Wilson Sayre spoke on Fusion network's news program DNA with Derrick Ashong to talk about the range of local responses to sea-level rise. She was joined by Andrea Bernstein of WNYC's Transportation Nation.

Sayre discussed how municipalities here see the need for immediate action while Tallahassee views the issue as a local one, not requiring state action. Even in South Florida, however, the challenge in advocating for preventative action is that sea-level rise is a slow-moving phenomenon. 

Although WLRN's special Elevation Zero has concluded, we will continue to cover the implications of sea-level rise.
