Climate Gentrification on the American Shoreline with Michael Allen
Better building codes+resilient shorelines = gentrification
This week, Peter Ravella and Tyler Buckingham track down Michael Allen to talk climate gentrification on the American Shoreline on the heels of his recent piece in Hakai Magazine, "Protection for the Rich, Retreat for the Poor." Michael Allen is a freelance science journalist and editor based in Somerset England. Although he has a zoology degree, over the last few years he has found himself tackling stories covering a breadth of subjects, such as sonic tractor beams, composting toilets, snakebites, and suspected Russian spies. He regularly contributes to specialist publications based in the United Kingdom and elsewhere. A interesting view from across the pond.
