Rising seas, floods or droughts: Living with water as nature intended

Water will always find its level, and in the age of extreme climate change, that’s bad news for low-lying cities hoping to keep it at bay. Erica Gies is a journalist and National Geographic Explorer, and she joins host Krys Boyd to discuss the Slow Water movement, an idea that pushes back on methods that speed water away so that floods and droughts find natural systems that work with today’s infrastructure needs. Her book is “Water Always Wins: Thriving in an Age of Drought and Deluge.” Think broadcasts today from the studios of WWNO in New Orleans.
