In response to the growing climate crisis, Brooklyn Borough President and Democratic nominee for mayor Eric Adams on Friday unveiled his new Climate Resiliency Plan in Coney Island — a month after the remnants of Hurricane Ida flooded swaths of the city.
“Let’s face it, we screwed up the planet. Folks, climate change is here,” said Adams. “We are facing a series of issues that are impacting the quality of life. It’s impacting our health, it’s impacting our public safety.”
Adams’ plan is meant to prepare the city for the effects of climate change, which are now inevitable, according to an expert who joined Adams at the rally.
