The power of transferring technology for climate adaptation
"Key. Part of adapting to climate. change is prediction in louisiana. Where water is eroding. Huge chunks of land every year that means looking at how increasingly dangerous hurricanes might move water and sand and which areas might flood. And which won't yesterday. We talked with the dutch scientists who make computer models that help make those predictions the water institute of the gulf or based in baton rouge that uses the dutch models to help mitigate erosion and transfers its findings around the country and the world just an errand worth is president and ceo of the water institute. He told me the answers. The institute is looking for though can only come from computers we started something called participatory modeling and what that really means. Is we begin with the community experience. We roll up our sleeves and really work with the community to understand. What are the things that they're most worried about. What are they seeing. What are their ideas for. How to protect and restore the areas that they care the most about we introduce the numerical models to our colleagues in the community. We get their ideas and their feedback. Can we actually take their thoughts. Their suggestions and we put those ideas into our numerical models and we run them then we come back and have another session where we say all right Look at the results of your suggestion. That was remarkable right. Sounds like what you're saying is it's really easy to run a simulation that says this area just won't be inhabitable anymore. The end everyone has to leave and that not only is. There are more empathetic way to do that. But in fact there might be a way to run a better simulation exactly. And if you do it the old fashioned way where you're looking at a series of of projects to protect vulnerable communities and you use the old fashioned benefit cost analysis that is going to absolutely contribute to environmental injustice so we need to value the input of community members and then we need to ensure that it gets the same level of treatment in determining. What solutions do we put forward. What adaptation strategies do we invest in. And where has a community solution to your knowledge ever been adopted so there are several in development and being considered right now in saint bernard there were a series of ideas that were put forward That are being considered. We also did a good bit of work. in participatory modeling in plaquemines parish louisiana. That came up with this sweet of Proposals that are now. Before the governor and the coastal protection restoration authority in louisiana for potential incorporation in the twenty twenty three coastal master. plan here. So we're really scratching the surface of this methodology. And we look forward to doing much more of it. Where else are you finding that. You're models are more applicable in the last decade or two decades. Then you would have imagined in the in the us one of the areas. We've been spending a lot of time. Recently in charleston south carolina there is a recognition that to preserve the deep history and culture. In a place like charleston. They need to invest now on the front end and not wait for the next storm and coastal environments and other parts of the other parts of the world are dealing with these issues and we spent a bit of time recently in argentina. Twenty five kilometers outside of Race in a community that is really trying to prepare for the next twenty five to fifty years of increased innovation so Unfortunately there's no shortage of areas. That need this kind of attention. I was actually going to say feels to me. Like maybe facebook or the city of san francisco which is eventually going to lose. Its airport should probably going absolutely and there's a lot of modeling that shows that a lotta the san francisco bay area for example be underwater in twenty to fifty years. Yes and while we haven't done it as the water institute. A couple of our of our colleagues at the institute before they joined actually did a lot of work in in san francisco for exactly the reasons that you mentioned. Facebook should totally call you. Give them my number.

Well, Kirk, welcome to the show. Good. Thanks for having me And how are you doing? We're hanging in there. You know, we watching Marco, We're glad that it diminished. Oh, are not as strong intensify. But now our eyes tearing the lore. Yeah. What scares you most about approaching Laura and Plaquemines Parish. My biggest concern is highway 39 on the East Bank. The water being pushed over the back levee that candidate the highway and we can't travel up and down is only one road on the West Bank. It's highway 23. That same principle. The water comes over that levee. And inundate the highway and it's not passable, and we can't move. People up and down for commerce are safety reasons. It's very concerning What do you get a sense that that even though Marco kind of fizzled out for for us getting a lot to the east of us, but we may get a few showers, but that's going to be about it kind of fizzled out for us. You get a sense that the people in Plaquemines they're still taking Laura very seriously. I think so. You know, we opened up a shelter. We re issued a mandatory evacuation yesterday at noon from Alliance to Venice on the West Bank of the Paris. And all of the East Bank of the parish and the compliment on the East Bank of the Paris actually conveyed to me that he thinks 70 to 80% of the people have evacuated And he said, it's almost like those town on that. Maybe they're eating out war. You know, Coben has thrown a lot of of craziness into the situation also, so no way to be a steady stream of vehicles coming up the West Bank, so I think people he'd no warning. Well, that's that's always good. You know, I was get concerned. When when when people get all wrapped up for Ah, storm in the media does the best job it it can and reporting what is known at the time. What is known at the time. It's not always the way it Ah transpires. But we have a responsibility to tell it like it is at the at at the moment, and I always get concerned that people were going to develop. False sense of security when something doesn't turn out to be as bad as it Ah was predicted to be when the next storm comes along. In this case, we don't have to wait very long for the next time you come along because it's already on its way. You're right. You're right.

You know, if they do say be prepared that if the road is covered with water, we may not be able to get to you a fast maybe without electricity. You might be without food or water. So if you do say prepare yourself, but you know the work conditions. Yeah. You know, I'm a huge fan of Plaquemines Parish, Citrus oranges and Saturn is in particular. Is there Is there any chance that any of this is any of this going? Tio Tio Tio threaten the Citrus crop this Ah, this fall this winter. I hope not through that.

I think I hope we're running out of alphabet letters. And you know that we couldn't be that lucky, but You know, it's just weird prepared and we'll be ready. Yeah, That's the way it should be.
