Cities that have been through a disaster learn one important lesson: “Nature wins.”
Within the United States, the recently released Fourth National Climate Assessment suggests big problems for urban areas, with the incidence of daily tidal flooding “accelerating in more than 25 Atlantic and Gulf Coast cities” thanks to sea level rise; that flooding has increased from five- to tenfold since the 1960s in many coastal cities.
