NJ SEED: Knowing that “The Devil is in the Details”, stakeholders anxiously await the complete rule proposal. It is wise to anticipate and plan for further costal degradation due to climate change (it has been occurring since Earth’s formation) and east coast subsidence, which leads to higher sea levels and increased risk of flooding (rising and sinking of land masses has also been occurring since Earth was formed). Because humans have little ability to control the forces of nature, it makes sense to plan to mitigate the impact but beware of overzealous regulators.
