Climate talks help educate, prepare
In the fall of 2012, participants from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Science Impact Collaborative, the Consensus Building Institute and the National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) began conducting interviews of residents, business owners and officials in Dover "to assess their level of knowledge and opinions on climate change," according to a release.
"It is exciting to see so many residents of Dover participating in this unique opportunity to discuss the potential impacts of climate change and testing the effectiveness of role-play simulation," said Christopher Parker, Dover's director of planning and community development.
Bird said residents also suggested reducing the risk by moving people and structures away from floodplains, increasing the capacity of the storm water system and using more flood-resilient building design.
"Climate change has the potential to impact coastal communities in a variety of ways, including increased flooding; salt-water intrusion in marshes, farmlands and wells; erosion; and damage to infrastructure and property," according to a NERR newsletter.
