What do we know about the relationship between climate change and hurricanes? What can we expect from coming hurricane seasons, after this devastating one of 2017? What can communities and cities do to prepare for this changing reality? Duke professor Susan Lozier (Ocean Sciences) joins UNC professor Danielle Spurlock (Department of City and Regional Planning) in a conversation moderated by environmental journalist Sara Peach.
