Excerpts;

“Leaders in New York and New Jersey have been warned for years, after all, that their highly developed coastal areas were vulnerable to rising seas.

“Politicians, they are short-term thinkers,” Cote said. “They think in the short-term needs of the public, and there’s not much visionary thinking.”
