NY ill prepared for climate events

The documentary The Great Warming was screened this week at the Zigfield.
It had news about the reponse to climate predictions of volitile weather and sea patterns. London has responded by building a retractable sea wall to keep high sea surges from going up the Thames.

The Hudson River has no such protection. Our subways and all of the tunnels would flood in a high sea surge.

And Boston doesn't have protection and Washington, DC doesn't.
We might ask at this juncture what our representatives found more important to address.
