In 2010 the Center won the Top Ten Award for our polar bear public service television ad, reaching a record 90 million people. This year we have a powerful new ad, and we need your help to inform 100 million people about the polar bear's plight.

Help us get the message out while polar bears still have a chance.

What New York City Needs to Build a Resilient Future - Klaus Jacob -
Static Preview

In Klaus Jacob's first video interview (filmed 6/19) after the release of the much discussed “Resilient New York” report, he talks about defining resilience, flood risk, managed retreat, intergenerational justice, and why NYC's climate plan is shortsighted. The climate projections (flood zones, sea level rise) used in the report stop at 2050, but the city's planning & construction need to consider risks beyond that date.

Klaus Jacob, research scientist at Earth Institute's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and professor at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs, warned of New York's vulnerabilities to severe storm flooding long before Sandy and has emerged as a central figure in discussions about post-Sandy NYC.
