CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A new NOAA report projects an increased threat as a century of sea level rise is expected to occur in the next 30 years.
Armon Alex, a local environmental activist says, "the city, we tend to take inspiration from a lot of other successful coastal communities that are doing great work. And I mention that because although we are taking inspiration from them, they have robust Climate Action Plans and we don't".
Alex is a member of the Mayor's Environmental Task Force, but he says he approached the city council as a private citizen. He says though the city is working on other environmental projects, leaders need to begin working on developing a climate action plan.
