Climate change has been causing sea level rise across the country. The rising seas pose a critical risk to residences, buildings and infrastructure located in coastal areas. A news story reported that a beachside house in North Carolina collapsed last week due to sea level rise and strong coastal low.
It has been predicted that, under the worst scenario, global sea level will rise by another 4 feet by 2100 (NOAA). NOAA estimates that the U.S. loses about 125 square miles of coastal wetlands each year from rising sea levels and development each year (NPR). That's about twice as large as the size of Evansville. Wetlands play a critical role in protecting the coastline by absorbing flood waters from intense storms and hurricanes.
