Professor Shagun Mehrotra Offers Insight into Impact of Climate Change on Cities

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the public debate over how climate change may impact urban areas has intensified. Assistant Professor Shagun Mehrotra, who is currently teaching the class Climate Change and Cities, is also the co-editor of Climate Change and Cities: First Assessment Report of the Urban Climate Change Research Network. Last year, Shagun was joined by all of his co-editors, Cynthia Rosenzweig, of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Sciences, CUNY’s William D. Solecki, and MIT’s Stephen A. Hammer, on a panel moderated by EPSM Chair John Clinton. You can watch a video of the panel discussion here: Cities Respond to Climate Change Book Launch 2011.
