ho will be affected by a changing climate? Just about
everyone, says Susan Farady, director of the Marine
Affairs Institute at RWU Law.
“More than half of the U.S. population lives in the coastal zone,
where rising seas and more frequent storms have a direct impact,”
Farady says. “If you’re a fisherman, if you vacation at the shore, if
you commute on roads or subways in coastal cities, if you pay taxes,
or even if you just like to eat seafood – climate change is going to
affect you.”
