Northeast US to suffer most from future sea rise

I recall, there's a tidal power plant in "Downeast" Maine that was started during the FDR administration that the Passamaquoddy natives run. A huge tidal power plant was once proposed in Nova Scotia. The Bay of Fundy has some if not the highest tides in the world and it was thought to design one that could provide a lot of energy, which I see one in China does. "Scientific American" published an article which showed that it could have the unintended consequence of changing the tides along the coast as much as half a foot in the Boston, MA harbor quite a distance away. Perhaps some mathematical model might be developed to counteract both as a benefit. About Climate Change Read the Article at HuffingtonPost
