When things get tough, lawmakers get creative. Faced with predictions that sea levels in the coastal areas of North Carolina will rise by a meter in the next century, legislators are considering bold action: making those predictions illegal. A bill being circulated in the Tarheel state would force scientists to estimate future sea levels on a linear path based on trends since 1900 — in other words, based on the simple assumption that trends always move in a straight line, no matter what.

Kinda sad cause I was at the islands earlier this year and they were beautiful. I loved it. One thing we all might consider tho is looking at some stuff just inland itsmight be worth big bucks in a few years'

It's not until the tourist figure out that they're rv is underwater at the beach because the sea level rises.
Just like them saying the gulf of mexico is safe and clean.
