"Can we prepare for a rising sea?"

Bio: Jim Titus has been studying the effects of rising sea level and urging people to prepare for the consequences since 1982.  He has a BA in economics from University of Maryland and a JD from Georgetown University Law Center. He also helped elevate the family cottage on the bay side of Brant Beach by two feet.  His most recent publication creates sea level rise planning maps, and estimates that more than 60 percent of Atlantic coast lowlands are likely to be developed and protected from the rising sea under current policies.
