Office of Sea Level Rise/Climate Change

Local and regional governmental offices should be established and well resourced to prevent and plan for sea level rise and climate change. New York City must commit to maintaining and resourcing the current Mayor’s Office of Long Term Planning and Sustainability for the long term and establishing senior staff in every department responsible for coordinating and implementing solutions.

Sea level rise and Global Climate Change

New York State established the Office of Climate Change to consider the consequences of Global Climate Change and the associated Sea Level Rise. But they face a daunting task because almost half the US population is unconvinced that these changes are occurring or that humans can effect the outcome. Certainly there are reports being released and recent weather events that prove we are experiencing Global Climate Change. Other reports indicate the Northeast is experiencing a faster rate of sea Level rise than other areas. We are seeing changes in the nature and character of storms but each individual storm is the product of a broad and diverse series of interactions. Often the changes are modest in size making it virtually impossible to prove they are related. It is only when investigators look in hindsight at the records now being generated that the evidence becomes clear. As a result many who have argued for a response to the predicted future remain discouraged that we can act in a timely manner. Some even suggest that we may have passed the tipping point where change could have been limited.

Perhaps it is time to increase the public outreach and education programs within the region regarding the coming changes?
