I contributed an article to the website, The Conversation, that publishes accessible pieces about important topics by academic researchers. My article examines how extreme weather, such as the massive snowfalls in Boston, exposes the vulnerability of our cities. I explore why these extreme weather events, connected to global climate change, are not shifting public debates about making our cities more resilient through climate adaption. You can read the article here.
