$12 in advance
What does Hurricane Sandy have to teach us about rising sea levels and climate change? What are the policy implications of climate science for our city moving forward: long-term adaptation, more ambitious forms of storm mitigation, carbon taxes? An panel of experts including Adam Sobel, Columbia Professor of Climate and Atmospheric Science, and William Solecki, Professor of Geography at Hunter College and Director of the CUNY Institute for Sustainable Cities, will explore the questions posed by the storm for the city of New York and port cities around the world.
