Subject: Sea level rise doesn’t know municipal boundaries 

Thank you Monica Mayotte for being a thought leader on this existential issue. Unfortunately the climate change debate is more a matter of politics and economics than of science and technology. The engineer Saul Griffith said that dealing with global warming is not like the Manhattan Project—it’s like the whole of World War II but with everyone on the same side. He was only half right because we are not all on the same side. Not yet, anyway. Getting leaders who are inspired by these huge challenges, rather than burying their heads in the sand, would be a big step in the right direction.
