New Jersey is not doing enough to ensure rebuilding from Hurricane Sandy takes climate change into account, experts said Monday at Rutgers University. And the most vulnerable places are the bay communities that suffered the most damage in the storm nearly one year ago, they said…Monday’s conference brought together nearly two dozen Rutgers researchers from numerous disciplines. It was the inaugural event of the Rutgers Climate Institute, a universitywide effort to connect faculty to examine climate change and the human and natural effects. Among the most significant challenges facing state and local planners will be finding ways to protect bayside communities, where the vast majority of flood damage occurred during the storm, researchers said.
