"Riggs said the science panel’s work had become stymied by increasing political pressure to allow “unlimited growth and development” of the North Carolina coast. The North Carolina General Assembly’s response to the panel’s original 2010 report on sea-level rise and other, more recent coastal policy decisions were factors, he said.

When experts throw their hands up to inconsistent political special interests, the tide may have very well turned.
