Last night in Chapel Hill, a bunch of scientists, former Secretaries of DENR and concerned environmental groups met to talk about the future of North Carolina's coast. Prognosis: not looking so good.
For an excellent rundown of the night's proceedings, check out this BlueNC recap. For an article explaining just what's going on, head on over to the N & O and read the article Caving in on our coast.
Most importantly, too continue the conversation held last night, the organizations involved have put together coastalconversation.com, which is intended as a public repository of all info on science-based coastal management in NC. There, folks are encouraged to answer the question: What’s your vision for what North Carolina needs to do to keep its beaches open and natural for the future?
