Our Coast and Climate Change

We will explore the effects of climate change on our Atlantic coast including the Caribbean, with an emphasis on North Carolina. Climate change is causing sea level rise, high-tide flooding, stronger storms, land erosion, polluted water supplies, ocean acidification, “ghost forests” and loss of agricultural land. We will discuss coastal responses to climate change, including offshore windmills, ecosystem protection and restoration, beach nourishment, flood defense and community relocation. This learning experience is based upon science, but no science background is required to participate.
