Monday’s Energy Futures Show: Sea Level Rise
The inspiration for the Blue Line Project this weekend in Hawaii might well be Professor Chip Fletcher of the University of Hawaii. Fletcher studies sea level rise at home and around the Pacific and has had an impact on public consciousness with his computer-generated graphic. His computer program draws a blue line through Honolulu to show the high-water impacts. HPR’s Energy Futures program on Monday will feature Fletcher and Associate Professor of Law Maxine Burkett, who directs the Center for Island Climate Adaptation and Policy at UH’s William S. Richardson School of Law. The show will be broadcast at 5 pm HST next Monday on KIPO-FM (89.3) and streamed at that hour on HPR’s website.
