As part of the Open Minds project people from around the world shared their thoughts. In this clip Lou Ann Martinez gave us a moment of her time shortly after hurricane Sandy devastated her neighborhood. What she shares is amazing - what was most overwhelming for her was not the disaster, but the volunteers that rushed in to help.
If climate change leads to more pronounced disasters as was the case with hurricane Sandy - will the global community need to shift away from increasingly hazardous zones such as river and ocean shores? Or do we "simply" fortify, e.g. build higher levies?
