Sea level rising

A one-meter rise in sea level could have waters lapping past the Bayfront Expressway in Menlo Park. What are local communities doing?

In a stunning reversal, the slogan for San Francisco Bay may have changed from "Save the Bay" to "Save the Land."

For more than 100 years after the Gold Rush, San Francisco Bay shrank by a third as new Californians diked and filled its shallow waters for farms, salt, dumps, ports, airports, homes and businesses.
