How Fast is the Sea Rising?

OK, this is just a short little post to inform you that Friday--October 25, 2013--at the Aquarium of the Pacific at 1 pm, there will be a hearing on sea level rise and its impact on California's infrastructure.

The state's Select Committee on Ports and Select Committee on Sea Level Rise are holding the hearings, which last from 1 to 5 pm.

The event will be held in the theater, and guests can check with the Information Desk to the left of the Aquarium's entrance. You should not have to pay to go to this hearing. However, if you want to enjoy the Aquarium  too, why not?  There's going to be a spooky family sleepover that night--kind of Night At the Museum meets Halloween, and it should be tons o' fun. ($60-70 per person, and each child must have a chaperone/parent with them).

Actually, there's lots of events--from trick or treating "Scariums" to night dives and lectures on such unfun topics as sustainability. I mean "unfun" as opposed to children's talks--I don't mean to imply the talk won't be interesting. Heck, this post is about state hearings, so let's all assume there won't be any games or live animals entertaining us.
