BIG News from WORK:
Woohoo! Despite my kerfuffle with the whole Napa/Sonoma voting links, you did it! A GREAT BIG THANK YOU to everyone who voted for WORK in the Bohemian's Best of Sonoma County poll! We love you all and your support means the world to us. Look for the March 18th issue of the Bohemian to see all of the winners. :)

Not a WORK member but thinking of joining now that we've been voted "The Best?" ;) For the first time ever, and for a limited time only, our FREE TRIAL DAY will include our PRIVATE OFFICES! Contact us to reserve a room at our Uptown offices or a seat at our Downtown shared space. (Offer good 9-5 Monday-Friday from now through March 13th.)

Have a great day at WORK!

Map of Petaluma with projected sea level rise for end of century (80 years from now)

NBC BAY AREA NEWS: ‘Unlike Any Disaster We Have Ever Seen,’ Says State Agency About Rising Seas in Bay Area

"Scientists project that sea levels could rise 12 inches in the Bay Area as early as 2030. With a moderate five-year storm, total water levels across the Bay Area would reach 36 inches above the levels measured in the year 2000."

“It’s a slow-moving emergency,” Wasserman said, adding “The bay will rise anywhere from three to six feet by mid-century, 30 years. It will rise anywhere from five to 10 feet or more by century's end."

This is a scary, yet fascinating article with engaging, interactive maps. (Check out Facebook and Google campuses in 10 years!!) Definitely worth 10 minutes of your time.

Pass this article along to your city officials encouraging them to start addressing this impending catastrophe now. Ignoring it won't help us find solutions. And time is of the essence.
