How to use nebulous in a sentence?

  1. Scott C. Holstad:

  2. Josh Haner:

    I flew a drone above the island showing just how precarious its location is : Homes clinging to the edge of an eroding coastline as unrelenting waves chisel away at what remains, after I saw what was happening on Ejit, I realized that climate change is not something nebulous that will only start affecting us in the future, but rather something happening right now. Residents are being forced to make the most difficult decision : Do they stay and build sea walls to buy some more time, or do they relocate ?
