Synopsis

When Superstorm Sandy devastated the East Coast it was a wake up call
to a new reality. Shored Up takes us to the heart of this climate
change controversy, following communities in New Jersey and North
Carolina where politics, economics and science collide. Beginning 3
years before Sandy hit and following the debates over beach
replenishment and other attempts to hold back the sea, Shored Up is a
convincing call for action along our coasts. As the oceans rise and
storms flood our towns and cities we have a choice to make: do we
continue to develop as we have in the past, ignoring clear risks and
danger? Or, do we allow science to guide our policies for the
future...before it's too late.
