"Benjamin Strauss, vice president for sea level and climate impacts at Climate Central...is more optimistic that the city will prevent flooding than is Robinson. “The geography of the area allows the building of a barrier,” Strauss says. “My guess is that we will build a wall and sit tight” before the water reaches Times Square."

Even the guy at Climate Central is unrealistically delusional. At 410ppm we're already committed to over 80 feet of sea level rise (eventually, maybe not by 2140 of course), right? I'm sorry but you don't build a wall and sit tight against 80 feet of sea level rise in Manhattan.

Oh well, he (and we) will be dead by then so it doesn't really matter much.
