Join the Museum of the City of New York for a panel that will explain the causes of Superstorm Sandy, consider the implications of climate change, and explore potential fixes, both in New York and in other coastal cities across the world. From the MCNY website:

What does Hurricane Sandy have to teach us about rising sea levels and climate change? What are the policy implications of climate science for our city moving forward: long-term adaptation, more ambitious forms of storm mitigation, carbon taxes? Join NY1 “News at 11” anchor and seasoned environmental reporter Elizabeth Kaledin as she moderates a discussion about these key questions about our city’s (and planet’s) future with an expert panel including Adam Sobel, Columbia Professor of Climate and Atmospheric Science and William Solecki, Professor of Geography at Hunter College and Director of the CUNY Institute for Sustainable Cities.

The event is co-sponsored by Climate Nexus and Climate Central. Reservations are required; register online or by calling (917) 492-3395.
