"The New Atlantis? Climate Disruption and New Orleans"
New data about climate change and subsidence in Southeast Louisiana doesn't bode well for the future of our city. Can New Orleans survive rising seas, sinking soils, and more intense storms over the course of this century? Join NOAA scientist Tim Osborn, Tulane ecologist Bruce Fleury, and Jordan Macha and Devin Martin from the Sierra Club as we discuss the state of the science and what can be done to prevent New Orleans from becoming the New Atlantis.
