How We Survive - Climate Tech Podcast
The climate crisis is here, and we’re looking for solutions. So "How We Survive" is following the money to the end of the world — in this case, South Florida.
Miami is one of the most vulnerable coastal cities in the world. Because of rising seas and stronger hurricanes, whole neighborhoods could be submerged by 2100. Or sooner. Billions of dollars are pouring into the region to help it adapt to climate change — hotter temperatures, fierce storms and rising waters. But will it be enough?
Join Marketplace housing correspondent Amy Scott in this season of “How We Survive” as she digs into how South Florida can adapt to remain as livable as possible. The podcast explores how the insurance industry determines where people live and the concept of “managed retreat,” the process of relocating entire communities from unlivable places. We’ll attempt to answer the question: How do you live in a place that wasn’t meant for development? And should we even try?
