Global Warming Could Cost Billions For North Carolina

Economists predict that global warming could cost North Carolina billions of dollars.

A new report that included researchers at East Carolina University, says coastal North Carolina has been identified as one of the country's most vulnerable regions to climate change.

The study says water levels are getting higher while erosion is pushing the coast lower.

Researchers also expect global warming to affect recreational fishing and beach tourism.
