"We are a coastal country," says Susanne C. Moser, a convening lead author for the National Climate Assessment's Coasts chapter, with 94,000 miles of coastline and more than $1 trillion in coastal infrastructure. Coastal lifelines, such as water and energy infrastructure, and nationally important assets, such as ports, tourism, and fishing sites, all are increasingly vulnerable to sea level rise, storm surge, erosion, flooding, and related hazards.
