Sea level rise is starting to show up all over.......

By the time current children have children, there will be AT LEAST a 4-6 foot rise in sea level. 150 million people will be displaced at a 3 ft rise. Electricity supplies are affected at a 4 ft rise.

I've totaled up most of the chain stores in NC (wish I was using ESRI's Business Analyst to be sure this is all!) and I'll post a chart with the totals. Without including drug stores I've got 2089. That's a lot of parking lots to cover! (I'll get busy analyzing soon.) The heavy pavers are Food Lion with 853 stores (just NC!) Walmart with 168 stores in NC, Harris Teeter with 144 stores in NC and Lowes Home Improvement with 114 stores in NC.

Busy with coursework this summer, but it's all good!  Stay tuned!  grin
