Boston Harbor at Risk

Boston harbor brings ashore a new enemy: Rising seas: Facing climate change, Boston must gird itself for an era of rising water — or be inundated
Excerpts:

The sea that surrounds Boston crept up nine inches in the 20th century and is advancing ever faster toward the heart of the city.

And as climate change accelerates, the pace of sea-level rise in Boston is expected to triple, adding eight inches over 2000 levels by 2030, according to a report commissioned by the city. The ocean might climb as much as three feet above 2013 levels by 2070, the report said.
