Building Climate-Resilient Infrastructure In Phoenix, Across The Country

Building Climate Resilient Infrastructure Image 2Charles Redman, co-director of the UREx SRN, speaks to Mark Brodie, of KJZZ 91.5, about building resilient infrastructure for our changing climate. Redman talks about how the answers for one city may differ from that of another.  In some cities, green roofs have been a wonderful solution, but they tend to work only in snow country since the buildings are constructed to handle heavier loads.  This clearly does not apply in Phoenix, and it illustrates why we need to approach each city from a different angle.
