A federal study aimed at protecting the New York and New Jersey waterfronts from rising sea levels and storm swells has been halted by the Trump administration.
A massive 200 Billion Dollar Sea Wall, built around New York to protect it from rare storms, is a costly, foolish & environmentally unfriendly idea that, when needed, probably won’t work anyway. It will also look terrible. Sorry, you’ll just have to get your mops & buckets ready!
