Island Press: Orrin Pilkey & Rob Young: 'The Rising Sea'
By 2100the time it will take a child born today to grow oldthe seas could rise as much as seven feet. That might not sound alarming, say professors Orrin Pilkey and Rob Young, authors of The Rising Sea, but the consequences are daunting: All along America's coast, the tide will rise and fall on massive seawalls or ruined roads, homes, businesses, and public buildings. Coastal cities such as Miami, New York, and New Orleans will be forced to enact a policy of retreat. Rising seas are inevitable, the authors say, but despair is not: We can save lives and communities, but only by facing hard and controversial choices, including abandoning storm-damaged property, changing where and how we build, and developing a national exit strategy from our coasts.
