“ Leaders in New York and New Jersey have been warned for years, after all, that their highly developed coastal areas were vulnerable to rising seas. And despite the bold talk of massive infrastructure improvements in the direct aftermath of the storm called Sandy, Cote wonders if the nation’s famously short memory will prove a barrier now.

"Politicians, they are short-term thinkers," Cote said. "They think in the short-term needs of the public, and there’s not much visionary thinking."

“And that,” he added, “is highly risky.” ”
