Sizing up Sandy

Join the Union of Concerned Scientists for a Webinar on the effects and causes of Hurricane Sandy

After the largest Atlantic hurricane on record affected U.S. states from southern Florida to northern Maine and as far west as Wisconsin, analysts from the Union of Concerned Scientists are looking at the implications of the storm in our Hurricane Sandy: Confronting the Realities of Climate Change blog series.

In this series, our analysts are bringing their varied expertise to bear on a fascinating range of questions—from the relationship between the storm and climate change, to the economic costs and health impacts, to how we can prepare ourselves and our infrastructure to be more resilient. Now we invite you to hear more from these and other UCS experts and to ask your own questions.

Webinar: Sizing up Sandy
Date: Tuesday, November 27
Time: 7:00 p.m. (EST)
