A year ago, Superstorm Sandy forced cities along the East Coast to confront the new reality of extreme weather and coastal erosion. Shored Up follows communities in New Jersey and North Carolina where politics, economics, and science collide to reveal the difficulties of planning for an uncertain future in the face of climate change. After the film, director Ben Kalina will answer questions about the film with Erika Spanger-Siegfried, UCS coastal impacts analyst, and Caroline Lewis, director of the CLEO Project on Climate.
