N.H. Conference Tackles The Question: How Can The Northeast Adapt To Climate Change?
The "Local Solutions: Northeast Climate Change Preparedness Conference" embodies a shift happening in the environmental and municipal planning communities--focusing less on preventing climate change and more on adapting to it. The conference comes after this month's release of the National Climate Change Assessment, which noted the country's weather patterns have changed dramatically, and will likely become even more extreme. Meanwhile, researchers at NASA and the University of California, Irvine have found that sea levels will rise dramatically over the next 200 years as a huge ice sheet in western Antarctica slides into the ocean.
NHPR spoke with EPA Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepe about what New England communities can do to better adapt to these changes.
