Grover Fugate, head of the Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council (CRMC) and the face of the state's climate research and planning, recently said climate change is happening faster than scientists can model it.
At a Jan. 8 Statehouse conference, proponents of addressing climate change in Rhode Island divulged some startling new projections. They also crystallized their message, and highlighted the need for funding.
Fugate presented an engrossing depiction of the destruction in store from rising sea levels, eroding shorelines and potent storms. Some of the current findings:
Salt marshes are eroding at an accelerated rate. Rhode Island's sea level is projected to rise 2 feet higher than global estimates - up to 7 feet by 2100. Modeling suggests that sea level could rise between 20 and 50 feet along the East Coast. 
Rates of beach erosion are increasing, prompting the need to relocate some buildings along the coast of South Kingstown and Westerly, Fugate said. Twenty-six foot tall sea walls would be needed to hold back rising waters, he said.
Fugate and others noted that costs will only increase from billions to trillions of dollars if action isn't taken.

Grover Fugate, executive director for the Coastal Resources Management Council and who served on the Climate Change Council, said, "We have already seen severe coastal erosion alongside rising waters. Only more can be expected with rising sea levels. We have a lot of problem solving and planning to do."
Moving forward, the Climate Change Council is working not only on identifying the causes of these changes, but preparing the state for the changes; how Rhode Island can adapt to the inevitable climate change.
Fugate said, "Now we are seeing little but harmful changes.
Fugate said, "We are a small state.
Fugate said, "We are the 'Ocean State.' We have an ocean economy.

Grover Fugate, executive director of the CRMC, said the plan would promote collaboration and flexibility among the three agencies.
"The SMP promotes agency agility. This gives us the chance to respond to issues and needs in a timely and thoughtful manner, with the best possible input from the scientific community and the people who work on the water on a daily basis," he said.
