SIGNIFIGANT RISE IN SEA LEVEL NOW SEEMS CERTAIN

SIGNIFIGANT RISE IN SEA LEVEL NOW SEEMS CERTAIN | Climate Change and Adaptation | Scoop.it
MANY scientists are so sure that the sea level will rise visibly in the coming decades that they are advising planners to adopt new strategies now. A predicted rise in sea level of one foot within the next 30 to 40 years will drive much of the Atlantic and Gulf shoreline inward by a hundred feet and some of it by more than a thousand feet, according to marine geologists. The environmental and economic consequences will be felt much farther inland. The loss of land to the seas ''will create havoc on our shoreline,'' warned Orrin H. Pilkey, a marine geologist at Duke University. ''Americans have been rushing to the coast, but much of our beachfront development has been contemptuous of natural forces.'' Creeping waters will destroy buildings and roads, wipe out recreational beaches, escalate flood problems many miles inland, pollute community wells with saltwater and drown coastal marshes vital to fish and birds.
