Alissa Walker, writing for Gizmodo:
The shifting boundaries between land and water can transform an area’s fortunes in an instant. When a coastline is altered, the habitats of the existing plants and animals can be destroyed, paving the way for new species to move in. It changes the game for people, too, as local residents now have different access to resources—for instance, losing farmland or gaining fishing coves.
If this isn’t evidence of new editor Geoff Manaugh’s influence, I don’t know what is. Gizmodo was in desperate need of a new direction before he started. So far so good.
