Louisiana has been called “the canary in the coal mine” for climate impacts as it reports rates of relative sea level rise among the highest in the world. This half-hour PBS documentary examines how Louisiana decision-makers engage with researchers and stakeholders to inform choices about how to manage risks driven by changing sea levels and storms.
The film will follow artist Julie Heffernan's lecture "When the Water Rises" at 4:30 p.m.
The lecture and film are co-sponsored by the Penn State School of Visual Arts John M. Anderson Endowed Lecture Series, Sustainability Institute, and the Institutes of Energy and the Environment.
