Up and down the Jersey Shore, the signs tell the story. They line the curbs in Holgate, at the southern tip of Long Beach Island, and stand in pebbly front yards all the way north to Sea Bright at the bottom of Sandy Hook. Any spot affected last year by Hurricane Sandy is getting ready for the next big storm…Kenneth G. Miller, a distinguished professor in the Rutgers University Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, has made a career of charting changes in sea level and the effects of human-generated climate change. He has even condensed his findings into a popular lecture titled, "Shall I Sell My House at the Jersey Shore?" Miller, who was born in Medford and now lives in Pennington, isn’t thinking of selling his Waretown property, but he does worry that researchers have underestimated the effect of sinking land levels, as a result of the Earth’s movements, coupled with rising sea levels.
