Richard Whiteford of Downingtown, Pa. is a certified presenter for Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth slide presentation. In 2010 Mr. Whiteford served as an advisor on the Interagency Climate Change Adaptation Task Force for the White House. During WHYY’s first forum on finding common ground on strategies to rebuilding Jersey’s coastal communities, Whiteford took time to share his thoughts on the impact Superstorm Sandy had in his field.

Whiteford was one of 60 people who participated in WHYY’s Ready for Next Time? Rethinking the Shore After Sandy forums. It was held at our studios on Monday, July 15, 2013. During each session we set up our “Two Minute Testimonial” video booth. This gives anyone a chance to share their thoughts about the Jersey shore.

Our next event is Tues, July 30, 2013
