The goal of Rising Tides is to help start a much needed discussion about the imminent danger of our rising sea levels. In a February report published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the data, analyzed by Climate Central indicates “seas may still rise by an additional 9 inches to 2 feet this century… Under the worst-case scenario investigated, if pollution continues unabated, and if seas respond to ongoing warming by rising at the fastest rates considered likely, sea levels could rise more than 4 feet this century alone, wiping out coastal infrastructure and driving communities inland.” While a few feet may not seem like much, just consider that a 4 foot sea level rise equates to 8 miles of coastline submersion and over 123 million US citizens (39% of the population) live in coastal shoreline counties.
