Mayor de Blasio’s $10 BILLION plan to save Manhattan from rising sea levels: NYC proposes extending the city's shoreline into the East River by TWO BLOCKS to create higher ground

    Study launched by city estimates 37% of Lower Manhattan risks flood by 2050
    With estimated 6-foot sea level rise, expects risk area to raise to 50% by 2100
    Plan proposes extending the shoreline up to 500 feet – or two full city blocks
    City is also hoping to fortify Lower Manhattan with grassy berms and barriers

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has revealed a plan to protect Lower Manhattan from rising sea levels by surrounding it with earthen berms and extending its shoreline by as much as 500 feet (152 meters).

The plan piggybacks on a climate resilience study released by the city today, which found that roughly 37 percent of Lower Manhattan properties will be at risk from storm surges in the next 30 years.

And by 2100, it says this will rise to almost 50 percent.

De Blasio’s new plan aims to combat an estimated six feet of sea level rise that's expected to encroach upon the city by the end of the century.

In addition to fortifying most of Lower Manhattan with grassy berms and removable barriers, which would cost roughly $500 million, the city has proposed adding more land to the lowest-lying areas, from the Brooklyn Bridge to the Battery.

Doing this would take several years, and could cost as much as $10 billion.

 New York City is more likely to drown in debt than   drown in water

This mayor is blissfully oblivious to NYC’s financial situation
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

People don't ask where are you going to get the money for the Space force. Besides look at all the money we saved by not giving the tax breaks to Amazon, we could use some of that money.
