Ka Pili Kai Fall 2014

We have all heard the dire warnings coming at us from all directions – climate change is one of the most important issues facing mankind, and could bring drought, sea-level rise, coastal erosion, flooding, increased coastal storms, rising temperatures, ocean acidification, and other devastating impacts in the coming years. While it is easy to become discouraged and feel like there is nothing that we as individuals can do, the dedicated staff and faculty at the University of Hawai‘i Sea Grant College Program (UH Sea Grant) are tackling these complex issues head-on, and working closely with our partners and policymakers to ensure the communities we serve are adequately prepared for whatever the future brings. In this issue you will read about how UH Sea Grant’s unique research and outreach capabilities are assisting coastal communities become more resilient, how we are assisting residents and decision-makers become more aware of the implications of climate change, and, importantly, have a greater understanding of what changes need to occur today to be prepared for tomorrow.
