This hour, we get reactions from Connecticut and learn how the travel ban could impact some of our residents.
Plus, the President’s denial of climate change is worrisome for environmentalists around the globe, but local efforts to plan for rising waters are in motion. We talk climate resiliency along New England’s southern shores.
We hear about efforts at the city and town levels to curb the effects of rising tides. And we find out how federal money trickles down to these efforts.
Do you live along the shore? Are you concerned about the effects of climate change on your community?
