Event Details

As the earth warms, sea levels rise and super-storms become more frequent and intense, many of the world’s major coastal cities may soon be under water. In the last five years alone, the United States has been hit with 83 hurricanes, devastating cities from New York to Houston.  Discover how New York City – overwhelmed in 2012 by Superstorm Sandy – has learned from that disaster, and must defend itself against rising seas and the next big storm. With 520 miles of shoreline and no coastal protection, engineers and urban planners are tackling the problem with urgency and creative engineering.

Peril & Promise, the public media initiative reporting on the human impact of climate change, scientific solutions and innovation in resilience, mitigation and clean energy, presented the four-part PBS documentary series, “Sinking Cities” in 2018.  Preview online: https://www.pbs.org/wnet/peril-and-promise/series/sinking-cities/
