Eroding Coastal Villages:  Consolidate And Create Community (July 18, 2016)

. . .

K          “The transition is necessary and inevitable and would be painful and wrenching.  For hundreds of years thereafter, they would talk about and write about and sing about and poem about the pain and the wrench attending the necessary Big Exodus.  And a few stray sages would note that The Big Move was necessary and inevitable.”

. . .

K          “Two hundred villages in Alaska need to be consolidated into 20 community centers.”

J          “So this approach applies to the Outer Banks in North Carolina as well as to Shishmaref in Alaska.”

K          “One policy.  From the Arctic Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean, from shore to eroding shore.  The same big thinking is needed in Canada and many other countries and regions.”

. . .

J          “There may come a day when we will need to think clearly and accept the fact that resources may not be infinite.”
