Rising sea levels are bringing high tides and tall waves to our nation’s shores. It is no longer possible to halt all the impacts of climate change. It is time to start adapting to those changes that are now inevitable. RISE: Climate Change and Coastal Communities, a radio series on AM1370/FM-HD 91.5-2 that airs select Sundays at 9 p.m., looks to the San Francisco Bay Area for answers. Chuey’s Story, airing Sunday, August 5 at 9 p.m. on AM 1370/FM-HD91.5, takes place in the tiny hamlet of Alviso, where Chuey Cazares’ large Chicano family faces the risk of flooding from both the creeks above and the Bay below. Restoring the shoreline to wetlands could save this town, but the solution may be bittersweet for Chuey’s family.
