CES acquired The Invading Sea in early 2023 to continue its mission of informing Floridians about the climate challenges facing our state and generating discussion on potential solutions. We are seeking continuing support for the website and staff working on efforts including: 

  • Student reporters highlighting the work of Floridians who are on the front lines of addressing climate change in such areas as coastal resilience and clean-energy technology
  • Webinars and other events aimed at encouraging bipartisan dialogue and reaching consensus on climate and energy policy
  • Videos explaining climate-related concepts in a clear and concise way to reach young people and others unfamiliar with these issues
