Jen Schwartz from Scientific American looks into a resident’s experience of living in a New Jersey floodplain after Superstorm Sandy. It was the third time that the neighborhood was hit with floodwaters within 3 years and their homes needed constant fixing and updates. UCLA’s Liz Koslov wrote, “the complexity and ambivalence of retreat serves as a reminder that there are no easy solutions and that it is not possible to rebuild forever or to wall ourselves off from the problems we face.”
