Will the LES Measure Up to Globalwarming Tides?

by Jeffrey Wengrofsky

As the City is currently renovating the retaining wall of East River Park I wonder if its planners have taken rising sea levels and worsening storm seasons into account. There is a scientific consensus that global warming is producing stronger storms as well as the melting of the polar ice caps and rising sea levels. Now is the time, as the retaining wall is being reconstructed, and before New York becomes another New Orleans, for City planners to take forecasts into account. As a Lower East Sider, I want to know if they are doing so.
