If the prediction made in the early 90s held true, most of the area beaches would have moved inland by now. If Al Gore’s prognostications from the early 2000s had come true. . . again we’d lots of recently transformed beachfront property. Now we’re still addressing the long sought after sea-level rise via the N.C. Coastal Resources Commission:
(StarNews) – The 15-member commission, which oversees development in the state’s 20 coastal counties, will meet in Room 162 of the University of North Carolina Wilmington’s Education Building, 970 Reynolds Drive, beginning at 1 p.m. Wednesday. The initial report, released in 2010, originally recommended that coastal communities prepare for 1 meter – or 39 inches – of sea-level rise by 2100.
It will never stop. And when we arrive at the year 2100 with beautiful coastal areas that will have been ravaged from time to time by naturally occurring hurricanes, such meetings will still be taking place. Or maybe we’ll be be talking about sea level fall by then.
