FLOODING IN AMERICA’S HEARTLAND

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Miami might be the poster child of rising waters in the United States, but further inland, states are grappling with torrential flooding that is becoming the new norm. Last year, flooding in the southeast killed 12 people and caused $20 billion in damages. This year's rains have already driven Mississippi into a state emergency, and Missouri is bracing itself with a levee system still in disrepair from last year's storms.

Can infrastructure like floodplains, wetlands, and engineered barriers save riverside states from their new, saturated norm? How are communities adapting to a changing, wetter climate in some of the most conservative parts of the country? Join us for a conversation with Ed Clark, director of the NOAA National Water Center, Julia Kumari Drapkin, CEO and founder of ISeeChange, and Martha Shulski, director of the Nebraska state climate office, for a conversation on flooding in America.

NOTES
This program is free, though we invite you to make a donation during registration; it will be online-only; pre-register for a link to the program.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
The Commonwealth Club is transitioning from Eventbrite to its own branded ticketing platform for events to be held starting in early May 2020. The new site will offer more features, with the most noticeable being a shopping cart in which you can place multiple events and pay for them in one transaction. Please let us know if you experience any difficulties by emailing [email protected] or calling 415-597-6705.

Enjoy and attend often. Thank you for your patronage.
