Here is some bad news to start your day:
Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston said:
"We’ve had nine inches of sea-level rise since the 1920s."
Politifact Fact Florida said, as reported in the Miami Herald:
"Her claim essentially matches the data collected by the National Oceantic and Atmospheric Administration. While there is considerable uncertainty about the future course of sea-level rises, Wasserman Schultz’s estimate of the historical rise appears to be on target."
We rate this claim: True.
