There are millions of places in the US to live. If someone refuses to leave a place that is not meant to be inhabited, then let them go down with the ship. Our world is better off with environmentally-aware people who will make it a better place anyway.
If sea level continues to rise, thousands of square miles of land in densely populated areas such as the eastern U.S. may be lost in a century or two, and flooding during storm surges will worsen. Construction of physical barriers such as seawalls would be expensive and in some cases infeasible.
Ok, but how do plan on paying for it?
