Will New York build $6 BILLION sea barriers to shield itself from another Superstorm Sandy?
The vast destruction wreaked by the storm surge in New York could have been prevented with a sea barrier of the type that protects major cities in Europe, some scientists and engineers say.
The multibillion-dollar price tag of such a project has been a hindrance, but may appear more palatable after the damage from Superstorm Sandy has been tallied.
'The time has come. The city is finally going to have to face this,' said oceanography professor Malcolm J. Bowman at Long Island’s Stony Brook University.
All generalizations are dangerous.
