Boston and NYC have had many traditional rivalries, such as those between the Red Sox and the Yankees. Recently, there have been a series of articles about the climate change and coastal risks in both of these major northeastern cities. The NYTimes writes about climate change in the NY area frequently.
Far less is known and talked about publicly for the Boston area.Recently the local public radio station took on the topic. See: Why New York Is Better Prepared For Flooding Than Boston. A new research report from Univ. of MA/Boston indicates greater problems than have been discussed publicly to date. See: Climate change could be even worse for Boston than previously thought.
