Sea level rise in Cherry Grove, North Myrtle Beach

Sea level rise in Cherry Grove, North Myrtle Beach

Yesterday was a good day for small businesses concerned about climate-change induced sea levels rising along the South Carolina coast.  The South Carolina Small Business Chamber, American Sustainable Business Council and the Winyah River Foundation held a press event in North Myrtle Beach to layout the case that sea levels are rising, there will be a significant negative impact on small businesses and it is important for local coastal governments to begin planning for adaptation to higher sea levels.

Three TV stations, the Myrtle Beach Sun News and a non-dailey covered the press event.  Below are links to two of those stories.
