The Endangered Coast, Climate Change and the Rising Sea

John Ganis

Saturday, March 14 - 1:00PM to 1:45PM
Celestin D

Climate change is a crisis of great urgency for humanity. My current project, The Endangered Coast, documents low elevation sites along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts that have been or will be severely affected by storm surges and rising sea levels. I will show photographs of sites impacted by Hurricanes Sandy, Katrina, and Irene as well as other low elevation sites vulnerable to the three- to five-foot sea rise levels predicted within 100 years My photographs showing the unsustainable development of fragile coastal environments underscore the absurdity of our state of denial around global warming and sea rise.
