Guests: Gilbert Gaul, Andrew Lewis
Coastal communities are facing rising seas and stronger storms caused by climate change. New Jersey is seeing some of the fastest sea level increases in the country. This hour we talk about how cities and towns are preparing for high water and flooding and which communities are getting the most support. We’ll also look at the cost of building up and defending shore towns, who is footing the bill, and whether or not we are fighting a losing battle. Our guests are GILBERT GAUL, author of The Geography of Risk, and ANDREW LEWIS, The Drowning of Money Island.
