Cities Underwater - Along The Water's Edge

 With the raise of sea levels and storm surges strong enough to drown out major metropolises and drive out half of the global population that now lives close to the water, climate change is causing serious damage to communities across New England. Sea levels are rising at an alarming rate, with projections for some coastal cities as high as 7-10 feet by the end of the century. In a politically unstable time people are taking to the streets in protest on behalf of science and the environment and are faced with the dilemma of fight or flight.
