The end of October and beginning of
November 2012 saw Hurricane SANDY rack the coastal areas of New
Jersey and NYC - action must be taken now to safeguard lives
and coastal property.
“This year proved that it’s wrong to
think that only major hurricanes can ruin lives and impact
local economies,” said Laura Furgione, acting director of
NOAA’s National Weather Service. “We are hopeful that after
the 2012 hurricane season, more families and businesses all
along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts become more “weather ready”
by understanding the risks associated with living near the
coastline. Each storm carries a unique set of threats that can
be deadly and destructive. Mother Nature reminded us again
this year of how important it is to be prepared and vigilant.”
On November 16, 2011, (this is old,
but a well done report) the Associated
Press reported that a team of over 50 scientists from
Cornell, Columbia University and the City
University of New York have completed a detailed research
report called ClimAID. The report focuses on major
changes to the climatic conditions throughout New York and
has portrayed those changes as radical; bringing
devastating floods, hotter summers, snowier winters and will
impact human health, communities and the environment.
The 600 page
report was funded by NYSERDA (New York State Energy
Research and Development Authority) and is intended to
provide a knowledgebase for water resource managers, urban
planners, residents and businesses to assist in adapting and
mitigating the documented climate-related changes that are
Posted here is a 57 page synopsis

We have to take our heads “out
of the sand” and prepare to cope, adapt and
mitigate the developing climatic-changes.
Note the sections on Shoreline Damages due to higher water levels
and increased frequency and intensity of storms.
We have all heard of the “100
year storms” – as shown in this dynamic research report,
the storms are more frequent and in greater
intensity that ever before and the trend will continue to
The first line of defense for the
North Atlantic Coast will be SEAWALLS to protect shoreline
property – as we have said many times before, “It Will
Get Worse – It’s Not Going To Get Better".
Island Seawall can help
mitigate the shoreline protection issue - Precast Concrete
installations can be installed from the Waterside to
Protect the fragile Landside from construction damage.
Precast Modules make installation faster and the systems are
designed to last.
