“A lot of these times we see these problems as having binary solutions, it’s either we stay and defend…or we just pick up and leave, but there’s a lot of space in between.”
Geologist Dr. Andrea Dutton was awarded the coveted MacArthur “Genius” award recently for her work in finding an innovative way to predict sea-level rise and identify the options for managing it.
Listen to her explain her innovative approach – and how that approach might be used in other context too – to Green Connections Radio host Joan Michelson in this inspiring and fascinating interview.
- Why she calls herself “a detective of the earth.”
- How she sees beyond just binary – either/or – choices and how we can too.
- What the choices are for coastal cities most at risk from sea-level rise.
- Why an earth that is 1 degree warmer could cause sea-levels to rise 20-30 feet.
- And, lots of great career advice and inspiration!
