Event description: Natural disasters like hurricanes, ice storms, and torrential rains are more and more destructive, just as human-caused climate change kicks into high gear. We live at the edge of the sea in jam-packed cities, and in our midst is a fragile waterway, the Hudson River, that we must protect. A speaker from the Columbia University Center for Research on Environmental Decisions will scope out how we can prepare for hurricanes and floods to come.
