Arkin quoted in Climatewire

ESSIC Deputy Director Phillip Arkin was quoted recently in an article for Climatewire, a news source devoted to publishing stories regarding climate issues. The article, titled “Extreme sea levels could hit West Coast – study,” covers how researchers are modeling the effects of sea level rise, a problem that can have damaging effects when paired with hurricanes. Arkin spoke to the reporter about the ways in which scientists have measured temperatures and tides over time, stating that "At the absolute most, it's been only 40 years where anybody's made any observations that were explicitly intended to speak to climate change.”
