Our great state has been criticized this week ahead of Hurricane Florence because apparently we were warned about the effect climate change would have, but we chose to just build more stuff instead. A law was passed in 2012 that ordered state and local agencies that develop coastal policies to ignore the science behind rising sea levels. The coast has seen population and economic booms, but that could all one day be wiped away. Sea levels are projected to potentially rise 39 inches by 2100. Decision-makers were willing to take the risk of growing the coast, let’s hope there’s a coast to go back to once Florence is finished with us.
