What would New York City be like if we had as many steamy hot days as Houston? Or if parts of the FDR drive, Wall Street, and parts of Coney Island disappeared on a regular basis due to extensive flooding. And what if we couldn't get away from it all because entry points to tunnels, bridges, subways lines, and airports were themselves under water? No this isn't some Hollywood horror movie, it's the warnings being issued by research scientists who specialize in climate change. Peter Goldmark, Director of the Climate Program and Environmental Defense Fund, explains the reality of these threats and how you can help to prevent them.
