Dr. Rob Young on the Growing Pains of Coastal Adaptation
Our semi-regular checkin with Dr. Rob Young
On this episode, hosts Peter Ravella and Tyler Buckingham check in with Dr. Rob Young on the state of coastal adaptation in the wake of the major investments made in the space this year. A professor of coastal geology at Western Carolina University and director of the Program for the Study of Developed Shorelines, Rob is critical of the Corps's cost/benefit analysis and argues that coastal policy needs to better account for the true costs and benefits of shore protection projects in order to generate adaptive incentives. It's a great show with one of our favorite guests! Only on ASPN!
