Sea level is rising at an accelerating rate and increasing the risk of destructive flooding events during powerful coastal storms. At the same time, increasing coastal development and a growing population are putting more people and more property in harm's way.
Join the Union of Concerned Scientists to hear more from our experts on sea level rise and coastal property insurance, and to ask your own questions.
Date: Thursday, September 26
Time: 8:00 p.m. EDT
The webinar will be moderated by UCS Outreach Coordinator Kate Cell and will feature:
• Melanie Fitzpatrick, climate scientist, Union of Concerned Scientists (What's driving sea level rise and increased storm surge); and
• Rachel Cleetus, senior climate economist and report author, Union of Concerned Scientists (What's wrong with the current flood insurance program, and how to reform it).
