Rebuild or Retreat

As climate change impacts rising sea levels and extreme weather events, coastal communities around the globe are threatened. New Jersey’s shorelines offer a case study on the difficult realities of a warming world. What does the future hold as sea levels rise and how should communities respond? Some residents want to continue rebuilding homes and businesses along the coast. And others say it’s time to stop investing in flood-prone areas. Who’s right? Should they Rebuild or Retreat?

This series was produced by Geraldine Moriba, Ed Hersh, Shayla Harris and Maya Navon.
