Complete Title: Rising Tides
Synopsis: Hurricane Katrina. Hurricane Sandy. The increasing frequency of such devastating weather events demonstrates the realities of climate change and rising seas. For many coastal communities the impacts will be devastating. Even before this escalating threat they have been fighting against vanishing coastlines for years with mixed results, often having no choice but to abandon properties and move buildings. Adding to this conversation are the conservationists and scientists who feel the coastlines should be left alone for a multitude of different reasons. In our documentary we will explore the topic of coastline erosion, showing what has been done in the past, what is being done now, what worked, what didn''t and what the coastal areas can expect in the future? Through interviews with scientists, experts, nonprofits, homeowners, government officials, and other groups offering possible solutions we will explore all angles of this issue. Then, by considering an uncertain future of sea-level rise and super storms, we will ask the tough questions: What should be done to save these coastal communities? Should we use new technologies to preserve these areas for human use, or should we allow nature to take its course? Is there a balance to be struck between nature and technology, a solution fair and agreeable to all sides? What are the best test areas for new technologies proposed to slow or mitigate the effects? Ultimately, our goal is to offer an interesting and educational perspective on this issue and then let viewers decide what should or should not be done to combat it in the future.
