Winston-Salem Journal: Politicians “totally irresponsible” on sea-level rise

The Winston-Salem Journal gets it right [1] this morning in its characterization of the recent actions of state leaders on sea-level rise:

“Plan for the worst; hope for the best.

That’s the best strategy to follow with regard to global warming, rising sea levels and development along the North Carolina coast. But our General Assembly and Gov. Bev Perdue are using a totally irresponsible approach in planning for the best and hoping that the worst doesn’t happen any time soon.”
