EAST EDISTO: A TRANSFORMATIONAL

CONSERVATION

VICTORY In the first part of February, an area twice the size of Mt. Pleasant was permanently protected in Charleston and Dorchester counties. This landscape of forests and fields, swamps and bogs, creeks, streams and branches – in three major watersheds – extends from the Ashley River to the ACE Basin. The protection agreement represents the largest private conservation transaction in the history of South Carolina. he successful negotiation that led to this landmark agreement between the owners – global packaging company WestRock – and Lowcountry conservation groups began a decade ago. Its origins, however, reach back to the 1930s, when West Virginia Pulp and Paper (the predecessor of Westvaco) built one of the state’s first paper mills on the Cooper River and began acquiring forest land in the Lowcountry. The opening of the North Charleston mill marked the beginning of the paper era in South Carolina, with further construction of paper mills in the state by

T

International Paper, Weyerhauser, Bowater, Sonoco, and Stone. The mills’ voracious appetite for wood pulp spawned the conversion of hundreds of thousands of acres of southeastern forests to loblolly pine plantations. By the 1980s, one-eighth of the land in South Carolina, some 2.5 million acres, was in timber company ownership. Westvaco claimed more than 500,000 acres on the South Carolina coast. As the century drew to a close, tax law changes, corporate mergers, and the threat of hostile takeovers by “corporate raiders” like Sir James Goldsmith and Henry Kravis launched a massive selloff of industrial timber land. By 2012, MeadWestvaco had sold 200,000 acres and placed much of their remaining property on the market. The largest block of land still owned by MeadWestvaco, East Edisto, covered 72,000 acres stretching from the Ashley River to the Edisto River, almost equally divided between Charleston and Dorchester counties. Because of the proximity to the Charleston metropolitan area, the company envisioned converting the land to housing subdivisions and commercial development. The Charleston County portion of East Edisto was zoned one house per 25 acres, the most protective rural zoning in South Carolina. This zoning code and its underlying county comprehensive plan were enacted with Conservation League leadership in the mid1990s, after three years of intense debate in 2001. In Dorchester County, only the Ashley River plantation district was subject to reasonably protective rural standards. That county’s portion of East Edisto was designated “absence of control.” This left

The Vision for East Edisto: • Create jobs before homes • Establish sustainable towns and villages • Provide educational opportunities • Maintain and preserve the character of the Lowcountry “The East Edisto Conservancy is an organization that was set up specifically to oversee the protections that are in place here because, as a friend of mine said, ‘Perpetuity is an awfully long time.’” — Dana Beach

The East Edisto Conservancy will be governed by a board of conservation and WestRock leaders:

Dorchester with substantially less negotiating leverage than Charleston. MeadWestvaco company representatives met with Governor Mark Sanford early in his second term roughly ten years ago to discuss their plans for a massive development project nearly the size of the City of Atlanta. Sanford denounced the proposal, concerned that it would “destroy the ACE Basin.” He encouraged officials to consult with Lowcountry conservationists to explore alternatives to full-scale development. As a result of those meetings, MeadWestvaco agreed to permanently protect 75% of the property. The remainder, closest to Summerville and a small area near Ravenel, would be developed according to planning principles the Conservation League has advocated since the organization’s founding in 1989. Traditional neighborhood designs would allow residents to walk, bike, and take public transportation, blending commercial uses with residential, and featuring an extensive network of parks, squares, and hiking and biking trails. Over the succeeding ten years, MeadWestvaco hired planners and convened dozens of public meetings to develop the details for the property’s future.

“After nine years of outreach and hard work on the part of our team and our friends in the community, we’re finally at the point of being able to celebrate the recording of density restrictions on 75% of the East Edisto area. This is a major accomplishment. It preserves over 50,000 acres of land in a permanently rural state.” — Ken Seeger, president, WestRock Land and Development And the devil was truly in the details. Over the course of a decade of deliberation, Ducks Unlimited, The Nature Conservancy, and the Conservation League took the lead in determining exactly what the protection strategy would look like. By the end of 2014, there was still no agreement on the specific protective instruments. Then in early 2015, Ken Seeger, the head of the land development arm of MeadWestaco (now WestRock), proposed creating a new nonprofit organization, the East Edisto Conservancy. Three of five board positions would

be filled by representatives of the conservation community and the remaining two by East Edisto landowners. Fifty-five thousand acres would be subject to a simple conservation easement limiting uses and density. Maximum densities range from one house per 25 acres to one house per 200 acres. The company recorded the easements in January 2016, following the approval in November of the development agreement and zoning change in Charleston County. The newly protected land creates a vital link between the ACE Basin and the Ashley River historic district. It is the largest single addition to the coastal greenbelt, envisioned to extend from the Savannah River to the North Carolina border, and brings the total protected acreage on the South Carolina coast to almost 1.3 million acres.

“If you really care about land legacy, then there has to be land included in the legacy. It is scale that matters in land.� – Mark Sanford, Congressman (SC-District 1) There are many lessons from East Edisto: the importance of a bold and specific vision for the future of the Lowcountry landscape and the persistent pursuit of that vision; the central role of strong land use plans and zoning codes; the benefit of working with open-minded corporate landowners with a long-term focus; and the value of collaboration among conservation and community groups. East Edisto is truly a gift for this and future generations.


“This landmark conservation agreement on 55,000 acres of land between the Ashley and the Edisto spans two counties and three major watersheds. It proves that commerce and conservation can not only coexist, but that they can dramatically enhance each other. It is important to remember that the stage for this achievement was set decades ago, with the pioneering efforts in the ACE Basin and on Sandy Island, where creativity and collaboration merged to produce unprecedented conservation results.” Dana Beach

WHAT’S A FORM-BASED CODE?

Dana Beach

Based on design principles from traditional places such as historic Charleston, form-based codes are a regulatory tool that planners use to create walkable, connected communities. As opposed to conventional single-use zoning that prescribes certain land uses, form-based codes focus on the form of physical structures and public spaces between buildings – streets, parks, plazas, boulevards, etc. CAN’T YOU BUILD WALKABLE NEIGHBORHOODS WITHOUT A FORM-BASED CODE? A form-based code puts urban character – the sense of place, how a place looks and feels – before the details of how the buildings are being used. Consequently, developers can plan communities capable of surviving the test of time as needs and demographics change. HOW IS A FORM-BASED CODE DIFFERENT FROM A TYPICAL ZONING CODE?

8

Modified from “So, what exactly IS a form-based code and why should anyone care?” by Mary Newsom, UNC Charlotte Urban Institute: https://ui.uncc.edu/story/ charlotte-explores-form-based-codes-david-walters C O A S T A L C O N S E R VA T I O N L E A G U E | S P R I N G 2 0 1 5

A form-based code relies heavily on “by-right” development standards adopted by the community. If a development proposal meets the code, elected officials don’t have to vote on it. Developers know those votes can be unpredictable. A form-based code requires buildings to have a certain form and relationship to other buildings and to the street but doesn’t focus as much on what the building is used for. Maybe it starts out as offices but later becomes shops or apartments. Many developers are on board with this idea because it provides predictability on which to base market decisions.

Richard Beck

A typical, conventional zoning code puts microscopic details of use before every other consideration. For example, if you have land zoned for offices, you can’t put anything else there without a rezoning, and the rezoning process usually has few clear design parameters that are predictable and fair to all parties. Conventional zoning codes focus on the use of the land, with little thought to the appearance of what gets built. Because design is low on the list of criteria, most places in most American towns have come to look exactly the same, usually with generic, “franchise” architecture.

Solar Energy ON THE RISE by Kenneth Sercy, Utility Regulation Specialist From the Lowcountry to the Blue Ridge, markets for solar energy are heating up in South Carolina. Solar panels have popped up on rooftops around neighborhoods and in business districts. They are also sprouting on fallow farmland across the state. The flurry of solar development in recent months has been driven by new electric utility programs designed to take advantage of falling technology costs and the multitude of benefits these new technologies have to offer, from local job creation and enhanced consumer choice, to reduced fossil fuel imports and air pollution. Those utility programs were made possible by the Distributed Energy Resource Program Act of 2014, a landmark renewable energy bill passed unanimously by the South Carolina General Assembly and signed into law by Governor Nikki Haley. For years the Conservation League has worked as part of a coalition of lawmakers, electric utilities, regulators, community leaders, businesses, and conservation groups to create a legal and regulatory framework that would allow renewable energy markets to flourish in the Palmetto State just as they have flourished in North Carolina, Georgia, and across the country. Now, we are beginning to see the fruits of that labor as families and businesses opt to go solar, and utilities seek to diversify their generation portfolios. Over the next five years, the market activity around solar is expected to bring more than $500 million in investment to our state. One key development that is sparking recent market growth is the utility requests for proposals (RFPs) issued in August of 2015. Duke Energy and South Carolina Electric & Gas each issued an RFP for large-scale ground-mounted solar projects (often called “solar farms�) to supply power to the electric grid. Eligible projects can be as large as 10 megawatts in size, but smaller solar farms like the upcoming 500-kilowatt North Charleston array on Leeds Avenue will also be built. A 10-megawatt solar farm represents about $20 million in investment and will generate enough energy to power about 1,300 homes.

A second key development that has animated solar markets in the Palmetto State is the October 2015 launch of utility programs designed to encourage small rooftop solar installations. Through these programs, families, businesses, and nonprofits can receive rebates and other financial incentives from their electric utility for installing solar panels on their property, whether the customer owns the panels or has obtained them through a lease agreement. The programs are spurring businesses to install rooftop solar. For example, seven Target stores in the Columbia, Aiken, and Charleston areas are slated to install panels in 2016. On the residential side, the Solarize South Carolina campaign led by nonprofit SmartPower guides families through the decision-making process for going solar, connects them with experienced installers, and provides access to financing. Additionally, Sunrun and other national renewable energy companies have established offices in South Carolina and are offering solar leases that remove the up-front cost barrier of solar technologies for households. For more information on going solar, check out the South Carolina Energy Office’s Consumer Guide to Solar at www.energy.sc.gov/files/view/SolarGuideHomeowners.pdf or visit the South Carolina Solar Council website at www.scsolarcouncil.org/. Be on the lookout for solar panels popping up on homes and businesses near you. SPRING 2016 5 | C O A S T A L C O N S E R VA T I O N L E A G U E

CAPTAIN SAMS SPIT STILL IN THE CROSSHAIRS by Katie Zimmerman Air, Water, and Public Health Program Director

The Coastal Conservation League has been fighting efforts to develop Captain Sams Spit, a 150-acre pristine sandy land mass at the southern end of Kiawah Island, for nearly a decade. The spit is ecologically significant and worthy of protection for many reasons. The piping plover, diamondback terrapin, bottlenose dolphin, and other rare and threatened species rely upon this fragile and highly mobile

magine a place that erodes and accretes regularly, surrounded on three sides by water, with a river on one side and the ocean on the other. These two waterbodies meet at an inlet, with a slim neck of sand that provides a connection to the mainland of Kiawah Island. The neck has completely washed away at least three times in recorded history. This fragile and highly mobile spot also happens to provide nesting and feeding grounds for rare and threatened species, including the piping plover and diamondback terrapin. The beloved bottlenose dolphin strand feeds here. Even bobcats den here. And South Carolinians kayak, fish, and crab here. This place you are envisioning is real: Captain Sams Spit, a 150-acre pristine sandy land mass at the southern end of Kiawah Island. For nearly a decade, the Coastal Conservation League has been fighting efforts to develop Captain Sams Spit. The Spit is ecologically significant and worthy of protection. The fight to protect the spit began in 2008 when developers, now known as Kiawah Development Partners (KDP), pressured then Congressman Henry Brown (R-SC1) to introduce legislation that would have removed Captain Sams Spit from the Coastal Barrier Resources System. This federally designated system delineates erosional and vulnerable natural areas where federal subsidies in the form of flood insurance and hurricane relief are prohibited in order to discourage development. Thanks to the outcry of hundreds of Conservation League members and activists, the bill was withdrawn and the spit remains in the Coastal Barrier Resources System today. But the fight to protect Captain Sams Spit was just beginning. Shortly after their legislative attempt, KDP began applying for development permits, including a request to build a 2,783-foot concrete sloped revetment and a vertical bulkhead to stabilize the property for the development of 50 homes and related infrastructure. Represented by the South Carolina Environmental Law Project (SCELP), the Conservation League challenged this permit.

The case over the proposed half-mile long concrete wall went before the South Carolina Supreme Court, and after several unprecedented re-hearings over the course of three years, the court finally ruled against the developer in 2014, but sent the case back to the Administrative Law Court for further consideration. In December 2015, Judge Ralph K. Anderson III ruled that the full 2,783 feet of bulkhead could be built, but only 270 feet of the concrete revetment could be built in front of Beachwalker County Park. By this point, the latest iteration of KDP – now based in Charlotte, North Carolina and backed by a New York hedge fund – had already applied for a different permit for a new 2,380 feet vertical steel sheet pile wall. On behalf of the Conservation League, SCELP appealed the permit, halting immediate construction through a legal tool known as the “automatic stay.” Before the legal hearing, KDP asked the Administrative Law Judge to eliminate or lift the automatic stay, allowing construction of the steel wall along the banks of the Kiawah River to proceed. Judge Anderson agreed to lift the stay. Responding quickly to the imminent danger facing the spit, the Conservation League requested that the South Carolina Supreme Court grant “extraordinary relief ” to prevent any construction on the spit. Fortunately, we prevailed and the Court enjoined Judge Anderson’s order. Throughout the turmoil in court, conservation groups from all over the coast were working with state legislators on a bill to update South Carolina’s beachfront management laws. While Captain Sams Spit is obviously part of our shoreline, the bill was not a specific attempt to protect it–it was a larger effort to ensure, among other things, that a baseline along our entire coast would never again move seaward. This action would eliminate development in highly erosional areas, defending taxpayers, homeowners, and natural resources. In an effort to support their plans for development on the spit and ignoring the devastating implications for South Carolina’s entire coast, KDP hijacked the bill, working with state Senator Paul Campbell (R-Berkeley) to introduce the “Kiawah Amendment.” The Kiawah Amendment would delay setting the baseline – a stalling tactic designed to buy time while sand potentially accretes on the spit. With more sand, the baseline could be moved closer to the ocean, giving potentially more room to build the road and infrastruc-

ture they need to access the spit for development. After a stalemate last year, the Senate committee debating the bill removed the permanent baseline language entirely. Now the Senate debate centers on a choice between two amendments: one from Senator Ray Cleary (R-Georgetown) which would set the permanent baseline now using existing data, and one from Senator Campbell, which would not only delay setting the baseline but would also provide a loophole for coastal property owners to move the line closer to the ocean in the future. In March 2016, Administrative Law Judge Anderson dealt our legal efforts a devastating blow: not only did he confirm his ruling that 270 feet of revetment wall could be built in front of the parking lot of the adjacent Beachwalker County Park, but he also allowed the full 2,783 foot length of vertical bulkhead. No one described this ruling better than SCELP Executive Director and General Counsel Amy Armstrong: “It’s an awful, awful decision. It makes a mockery of public use, of public benefit.” The good news is that SCELP filed motions to stay construction on the spit, and, unexpectedly, Judge Anderson granted our motion to impose a stay on his most recent decision. Conservation League and SCELP also filed a notice of appeal of Judge Anderson’s Order on Remand in the Court of Appeals, while simultaneously filing a motion to transfer the appeal to the South Carolina Supreme Court. We will remain vigilant and keep you informed as the legislative debate on Captain Sams Spit continues this session, and as we work through legal appeals. For more information on Captain Sams Spit, visit our website at www.coastalconservationleague.org/ captain-sams-spit. Captain Sams Spit should be preserved in a pristine state for perpetuity. The help and support of our membership has been vital. Stay strong for the spit! To order your own Save Captain Sams Spit sticker, email Katie Zimmerman at katiez@scccl.org.

wo proposed economic development projects will drive the conservation agenda on the South Coast in the coming months: a 5,000acre multi-use development and a new port, both in rural Jasper County. The proposed $4.5-billion Jasper Ocean Port and facilities will occupy 1,500 acres eight miles from the mouth of the Savannah River in southern Jasper County and upstream from the Tybee National Wildlife Refuge. Once completed, it will handle seven million units of shipping cargo that the Savannah and Charleston ports will not be able to process after they reach capacity, which is anticipated to happen in the next 15 years. (It is important to realize that prior predictions of cargo growth rates in Charleston and Savannah have been wildly inaccurate, so this 15-year perspective should be taken with a large grain of salt.)

PAPPY’S ISLAND PROTECTED, CAPE ROMAIN ENHANCED

Dana Beach

by Katie Zimmerman

he Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge is federally designated for fish, wildlife, and plant conservation. The refuge is home to more than 277 different bird species and boasts the largest nesting rookery for brown pelicans, terns, and gulls on the South Carolina coast, as well as the largest wintering population of American Oystercatchers on the East Coast. More than 24 types of reptiles, 12 varieties of amphibians, and 36 species of mammals have been recorded in the refuge. Furthermore, Cape Romain supports the largest nesting population of loggerhead sea turtles outside the State of Florida.

Pappy’s Island (sometimes called Papa’s or Pappa’s Island) is an undeveloped 104-acre marsh hummock island that is surrounded by the refuge near McClellanville. It is also one of the last privately owned islands within the authorized boundaries of Cape Romain. It consists of 80 acres of tidal marsh and 24 acres of upland, including prehistoric shell middens. In its entirety, Cape Romain covers 22 miles of undeveloped shoreline, part of the largest stretch of undeveloped shoreline on the entire East Coast. Aside from a small cutout at McClellanville, the seaward side of the intracoastal waterway serves as the refuge’s border. Pappy’s Island falls within this small excluded area. As a marsh hummock, Pappy’s Island hosts migratory songbirds during the summer, including painted buntings, which use hummocks for both resting and breeding. Painted buntings are declining in number and are a high priority species in the Southeast. They also happen to be one of the most colorful and sought after birds by birdwatchers in South Carolina. The state supports a third-to-a-half of the total breeding population and is considered to play a vital role in the species’ conservation. In the 2015 State Wildlife Action Plan recently developed by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, the painted bunting is listed in the category of Highest Priority Species for protection.

Under FWS ownership, the tract will be managed within Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge. The property’s frontage along the intracoastal waterway will provide new public water access to water not commonly available. The protection of this property ensures continued good health for area waters, benefiting not only wildlife, but also the culture and livelihood of nearby McClellanville, where the local economy is closely tied to commercial fishing and shellfish harvesting within the refuge.

Dana Beach

Until recently, Pappy’s Island was owned by developers and zoned to accommodate two homes. These developers obtained permits for a septic system and a private, recreational dock for the island, despite public opposition. Allowing the dock to be constructed in this area would have degraded a fragile habitat and set a dangerous precedent . The Conservation League, represented by the South Carolina Environmental Law Project, appealed the dock permit and coordinated with concerned citizens. Meanwhile, The Nature Conservancy and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) began writing grants to secure funding sources to purchase the property. The Open Space Institute (OSI) evaluated options for purchase, and as our litigation progressed, OSI successfully negotiated a fair price. After months of work, OSI successfully closed on the property on March 1, 2016. FWS is prepared to ultimately take control of the property with half of the funds already secured from the Charleston County Greenbelt Bank, and the other half provided by North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA) and Land and Water Conservation Fund grants. Pappy’s Island is safe from development, and in a year will be officially protected forever, thanks to this team effort.

rowFood Carolina’s demonstration garden, completed in early 2012 with support and leadership from a handful of donors and volunteers, has been home to the Meeting Street Academy’s school garden program for three years. Meeting Street Academy, located blocks from the GrowFood Carolina warehouse, provides a high quality education to students based on the belief that a child’s zip code should not determine his or her educational opportunities. The garden provides hands-on opportunities for kindergarteners and first and second grade students to learn about their food – from the seeds they plant to food they eat. The curriculum integrates health and nutrition, science, and math into each lesson for a comprehensive, practical, and applicable learning experience. Working in the garden also fosters environmental stewardship and a connection with nature. This year, GrowFood Carolina is partnering with the Green Heart Project, a Charleston-area nonprofit that builds school gardens and promotes farm-to-school programs. In addition to connecting students to a new learning experience, the Green Heart Project teaches healthy eating through culinary classes and provides the opportunity to learn about the local food system. The Green Heart Project’s oversight and maintenance is greatly enhancing our garden’s productivity, aesthetics, and function as an educational resource.

DORCHESTER he rivers, marshes, and beaches that make the South Carolina coast so special depend on state laws for protection. The Coastal Zone Management Program is one of the laws that we depend on to preserve the marshes and wetlands that attract visitors, provide protection from flooding, and serve as the pit stops for migratory birds. But legislators have introduced bills that would remove coastal protections for much of Dorchester County under South Carolina’s Coastal Management Program. If successful, these bills would set a dangerous precedent for other coastal counties. The current designation of the coastal zone is the result of much study and compromise, and it reflects the need for more planning and protection in the most rapidly growing areas near our coast. The Conservation League supports the current coastal zone in its entirety.

hen a government agency makes a decision that binds people to its actions, the people affected have a right to due process to appeal the decision. Article 1, Section 22 of the South Carolina Constitution requires that if an administrative agency makes a decision, e.g., to permit the disposal of hazardous waste next to a church and a lake, as DHEC did in Pinewood — those affected have the right to due process and a chance to be heard. A bill in the South Carolina Senate would gut that right. Certain developers want to take away what’s called the “automatic stay,” which hits the pause button on irreversible harm, like dumping hazardous waste by a swamp or bulldozing centuries-old bald cypresses. The automatic stay prevents this irreversible harm from happening while the court is deciding on the legality of the government’s action. The stakes are high, and the Conservation League’s team is working at the State House for this fundamental legal protection.

PAVING OVER HORRY COUNTY’S

NATURAL HERITAGE

Lewis Ocean Bay was acquired by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (DNR) as a Heritage Trust Preserve in the late 1980s. It is one of the crown jewels of South Carolina’s natural landscape – 9000 acres known for its Carolina Bays bears, and Venus’ flytraps – tucked between Conway and Myrtle Beach. In order to have a say in the preserve’s future, DNR negotiated ownership of the preserve to the center line of the dirt road known as International Drive, serving as the southern border for L.O.B. In the intervening years, two major roads, SC 22 and Hwy 31 were built on the preserve’s northern and eastern borders, allowing development to creep closer and closer, fragmenting the preserve’s habitat and endangering its survival.

orry County officials have set their sights on International Drive, envisioning another major road to facilitate more development. In 2006, Horry County passed a one-cent transportation tax referendum to fund the paving of International Drive. To begin construction, Horry County had to obtain the right to the SC Department of Natural Resources’ (DNR) half of International Drive. In 2010 DNR “sold” Horry County their rights to the road; in return, Horry County agreed to a twolane paved road and three animal passageways to move bears and other animals safely across the road.

by Nancy Cave, North Coast Director

By 2013, the parties had renegotiated the deal, and what was to be a two-lane road became a four-lane road with no animal passageways and ten curb cuts for access to areas of future development. The redesigned International Drive would destroy 24 acres of wetlands, and with no animal passageways, cars and animals would be bound to collide. The Coastal Conservation League and the South Carolina Wildlife Federation – represented by the South Carolina Environmental Law Project – opposed the redesigned International Drive. When Horry County submitted their permit application, the Conservation League wrote a letter opposing it but offered to negotiate with the county on a road that would meet S P R I N G 2 0 1 6 | C O A S T A L C O N S E R VA T I O N L E A G U E

the needs of drivers while better preserving Lewis Ocean Bay. Conservation League staff told Horry County officials that we would not oppose the road if the county amended the permit to include an animal passageway, fencing on both sides of the road, and a reduction in curb cuts. Conservation League staff sat at the table with Horry County Council members twice and were rebuffed both times. Last June, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) issued the county a permit for International Drive. Later that summer, the Conesrvation League appealed the permit. The appeal was argued in front of the Administrative Law Court in February. The future of Lewis Ocean Bay is at stake. This pristine ecosystem could become a fragmented and isolated landscape, with the pressure of development a constant threat. There are alternatives to maintain Lewis Ocean Bay’s integrity: building a two-lane road with animal passageways, fencing on both sides of the road to keep animals and cars separated, and mitigation that extends the preserve to the Waccamaw River. But ultimately, the survival of Lewis Ocean Bay will depend on a community committed to protecting a natural treasure right in their own backyard.

The Challenges of

ENERGY

CLIMATE CHANGE by Hamilton Davis, Energy and Climate Director

very year on October 2nd, my mom reminds me that it has never rained on my birthday. In 2015, Mother Nature put an emphatic end to that streak as the “1,000-year flood” descended upon South Carolina. Wreaking havoc on homes and businesses, roads and bridges, farms, and daily life across our state, South Carolinians experienced first-hand just how disruptive extreme weather can be, as well as a preview of what climate change could mean in the Palmetto State. For a coastal state with a heavy reliance on natural resources and agriculture, South Carolina is particularly vulnerable to the changes that climate scientists are predicting if greenhouse gas emissions are not reduced in the coming years. In a 2013 study, the SC Department of Natural Resources noted significant changes in wildlife behavior ranging from the nesting of wild turkeys to the arrival of dolphin (the fish; the mammal was already here) in the waters off of our coast. The report warns of detrimental drought and climate-induced changes to wildlife habitat, sea level rise, invasive species, and traditional uses of natural resources. Although the SC Department of Agriculture has yet to take a position on the threat of climate change, a position should emerge after the estimated $300 million of damage done to crops across the state during the torrential rains of early October. More extreme weather, drought, and invasive species only add to future concerns surrounding our changing climate’s impact on the agricultural sector. Life along the South Carolina coast could be hit the hardest. The past century saw sea levels rise more than a foot, and cities like Charleston are already struggling to deal with intensified flooding that has proven increasingly disruptive to daily life.

E

More extensive erosion of our barrier islands is also proving a difficult challenge for coastal communities with dwindling options at their disposal. Under a business-as-usual scenario, we could witness another foot-and-a-half of sea level rise by mid-century and more than three feet by 2100. A 1.4-foot increase in sea level is estimated to put $5.7 billion in South Carolina coastal properties underwater at mean high tides. These problems will only be exacerbated by increased greenhouse gas emissions. Fortunately, there are reasons to be optimistic: World leaders gathered recently in Paris to strengthen their commitments in the fight against climate change; new EPA carbon regulations, if implemented, will significantly reduce the United States’ carbon pollution in the electricity sector by 2030; and states like South Carolina are increasingly investing in clean energy resources like solar, while local governments like Charleston and Beaufort are engaging on climate adaptation strategies that will result in more resilient communities in the decades ahead. There’s no excuse for inaction in the face of the real world changes that are already taking a toll on South Carolina. The Coastal Conservation League remains on the leading edge of guiding our state towards a clean energy future.

community groups. Persistence paid off. The Conservation League and partners collected more than 5,000 signatures from citizens across South Carolina to convince the Obama Administration to stand up to the oil industry and prohibit drilling for oil and gas off our coast. “This is a monumental victory,” Davis states. “A local movement to protect our way of life just put an end to a federal proposal backed by the most powerful industry on the planet.” The conservation community is grateful for the support of numerous elected officials in this effort. In particular, Mayor Billy Keyserling in Beaufort, South Carolina Senator Chip Campsen from Charleston, and Congressman Mark Sanford played critical roles in eliminating this threat to our coastal environment and economy. Additionally, we extend a special thanks to the 24 cities and counties that passed resolutions opposing offshore drilling, the citizen groups SODA POP and Don’t Drill SC Lowcountry, the Southern Environmental Law Center, Oceana, Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, Conservation Voters of South Carolina, South Carolina Wildlife Federation, the South Carolina Environmental Law Project, and all of the other individuals, businesses, groups, and leaders that spoke out and stood up for our treasured coast.

he Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) had originally included the Atlantic Ocean in its proposed five-year program for oil and gas development on the Outer Continental Shelf but decided to remove the Atlantic Ocean after facing widespread public backlash from communities up and down the coast. The decision will stand until 2022. The Coastal Conservation League, along with numerous conservation partners, played a leading role in organizing broad opposition from citizens, businesses, local governments, and elected officials at the local, state, and federal levels. “This decision shows that local voices still matter on national issues,” says Energy Director Hamilton Davis. “The coastal communities in South Carolina that would have been most impacted by offshore drilling stood up to Big Oil and won. What a victory for our environment, our economy, and the future of our coast.” For ten years, the Conservation League has delivered the message: Protect our coast from risky offshore drilling, which threatens our tourism economy and the marine life and natural resources on the South Carolina coast. We advocated at city council meetings, the State House and in Congress. We met with business leaders, BOEM regulators, and local

The Vase in the Chapel The funeral home chapel had high ceilings painted a dull gray with walls a lifeless tan. Plant a tree for me. The recorded organ played some familiar hymn. Eighteen or twenty friends seated themselves in mostly vacant pews. Plant a tree for me. Professional staff rolled the casket to its position in front of the altar. The deceased grandmother’s children and grandchildren followed – seating themselves in the front pews. Plant a tree for me. A paid minister who never knew the deceased delivered an appropriate message which few of his audience could hear. Plant a tree for me. The family walked out beginning a four-hour long trip to a cemetery where few would ever visit another day. Plant a tree for me. Create a garden or a forest – Heal and protect the earth with a planting to benefit the people and animals. Please plant a tree for me.

George Bowman Hartness, 2013 age 94 Mr. Hartness, a long-time friend of the Coastal Conservation League, died in June 2015.
