The Graniteville Swamp area, as it’s known locally in Staten Island, continues their fight to preserve their wetlands and forests for a number of reasons, from disappearing to builders to increasing their risk of flooding. In this case, a new BJ’s.
This video covers some of their event, which includes a presentation of Bill McKibben’s video: Do The Math, along with 3 other Hurricane Sandy videos, followed by a discussion with Carl Alderson from the National Oceanic and Atomspheric Administration (NOAA), and still another presenter with audience Q & A. And a computer was made available for the audience during the entire 4 hours ++ to see how their area may be effected by flooding.
