Bard Center for Environmental Policy Presents

Wednesday, October 4, 2017
National Climate Seminar: Cities Taken By Storm: Hurricanes and Urban Sustainability
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Dr. Michael Neuman, University of Westminster

Katrina, Irene, Sandy, Matthew, Harvey, Irma, Maria. We all know the names of these hurricanes. The reason: they were all record-breaking monsters, and they all hit the US in the last dozen years—three this year. Less known, but far more deadly, have been the devastating floods hitting South Asia this year, with over 7,000 people killed, and tens of millions displaced. Records are supposed to fall every thousand years, not every season, but as carbon pollution is warming the oceans and the atmosphere, we are juicing hurricanes and forcing the hydrological cycle, while raising sea levels and putting cities at risk from storm surge.  Can we change direction? And how do we adapt?

Join distinguished urban sustainability expert Dr. Michael Neuman for a Bard CEP webinar: Cities Taken by Storm: Hurricanes and Urban Sustainability live streaming on Wednesday, October 4 at noon.
