As giant storms hammer Boston, officials are doing little to prepare for them
"For the second time in weeks, Boston and scenic shore communities were lashed by a hundred-year storm. It left little doubt to some that near-hurricane-force winds that drive freezing floodwaters into business districts and neighborhoods are becoming a new normal for which the city and its surrounding area are not prepared.
In other words, impacts from climate change, which were supposed to wallop the area 80 years from now, are already menacing a region that is only beginning to talk about ways to protect itself."
