Thanks to human caused global warming, will your PNW homelands be joining the murky realm of the Atlanteans?  Check this handy map!  Poor ol' stinky PORT OF TACOMA... filling wetlands is not a good long term strategy.  OH WELL, like that one song by the musical group Tool, 'Learn to Swim'

Even worse.Can you imagine having only half of the oxygen that you breath as with the extinction of the oceans plankton it supplies half of the Earth's Oxygen content.Worldwide phytoplankton down 40% since the 1950's

Just like the movie Soylent Green.At least I won't be alive to see this bleak dystopian future.

Hopefully the port of Tacoma will turn back to the glorious age of sail when fuels become depleted and these big container ships will be a relic of the wasteful past.Besides sailing ships are a thing of beauty whereas big container ships are ugly (like cars).Large commercial sailing ships use a sustainable environmentally friendly form of propulsion (the trade winds).The age of sail will come back and it's inevitable.Some modern ships are even hybrids too like using solar electric power as well as the sails.
Why all resources will become depleted.

Global warming is DIRECTLY related to overpopulation. I haven't heard President Obama or any other influential world  leader call out the less developed world for unsustainable birth rates. Look at Mexico, the Philippines, Indonesia, India, Africa, etc. These people either don't know about or don't care about family planning or any sort of planning whatsoever. Unless we can get the worlds population stabilized in pretty quick order, it isn't going to make a lick of difference what we do about emissions and other secondary issues.

Overpopulation is one side of the coin of the issue and has a lot to do with the problem.Perhaps penalize Federal Income Taxpayers instead of subsiding them (giving tax money back) for having more children.
A much lesser tax for those whom are single with no dependents.
A much higher tax for those will a lot of kids.
Also Penalize those getting DSHS benefits for having kids and eliminating the child lunch program.
Why should taxpayers pay for other peoples kids when more children equals a higher future population which threatens life on Earth (us all).
