Annapolis based sailor, Matt Rutherford recently made news by setting a
record for single-handedly circumnavigating the Americas in his sail boat.
His route took him through the fabled Northwest passage – a feat which was
unthinkable before the record ice melt of recent years. In this picture, 
taken on board his sail boat in the Annapolis Harbor, he holds a “climate
dot” reading “Melting Arctic = Annapolis Floods”. In 2003 the Annapolis
Harbor and surrounding commercial area were inundated with by Hurricane
Irene’s storm surge. According to scientists that surge was a foot higher
than a similar storm’s surge 70 years earlier thanks to sea level rise.
