Portland, South Portland plan to fight against climate change

This article discusses the cities of Portland and South Portland efforts to fight climate change. Municipal officials hope to develop plans for each community to reduce carbon footprints and counter the effects of global warming. Based on the latest tidal trends, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts that by the year 2100, those areas will be under at least a foot of seawater at high tide on a calm day. Add a little wind and weather and accelerated glacial melting, and the sea level in Casco Bay could rise as much as 6 to 10 feet in the same period.
