waterloop #83: Creating A New Coast with Jeff Peterson

The U.S. coast is unprepared for the increasing impacts of storms and sea level rise on communities, infrastructure, the economy, and the environment itself. Comprehensive changes in leadership, policies, programs, and funding could create a more resilience coastline. In this episode Jeff Peterson discusses his book A New Coast, which offers strategies for responding to devastating storms and rising seas. Jeff outlines needed changes, including to flood insurance and disaster programs, assistance to states and municipalities, and investment in preparedness rather than response.
