Rising sea level is of particular importance to coastal communities like those that make up Metro Vancouver. This public Carbon Talk, featuring oceanographer and author John Englander, discussed sea level rise, its economic and geographic impacts, and how we can intelligently adapt our communities.
John Englander is an oceanographer and global ocean explorer with expeditions under the polar ice cap, deep dives in research submarines and visits to Greenland and Antarctica. High Tide On Main Street: Rising Sea Level and the Coming Coastal Crisis, his new book, was released on October 22, 2012, one week before Hurricane Sandy. It described just such an event hitting New York City as an example of what might occur.
