National Academies of Science: Everglades restoration plans need new look in face of climate change

A review of work to restore the normal ecology of the Everglades by the National Academies of Sciences urges that a re-assessment be done to ensure the planning and projects are keeping climate change and its impacts in mind.

"The committee remains unconvinced that the current, individual, project-level planning approach is an effective means of reassessing the systemwide, scientific-guiding vision for restoration in light of the extended expected timeframe for completing the (Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan), changing system conditions, and the evolving understanding of the future Everglades ecosystem," the NAS's committee assigned to monitor the restoration progress said in its Seventh Biennial Review of the massive project.
