Sandy Forum: Discussion, Argument, Analysis

Tom Johnson | October 30, 2012 | Spotlight Forum
A shared space for members of the NJ Spotlight community to exchange ideas and opinions about pressing issues involving politics and public policy

What better time than in the middle of a hurricane to raise some questions about larger issues:

  • Is Hurricane Sandy another indication that global climate change is here to stay?
  • Does the potential of coastal flooding pose a danger to Oyster Creek, much as what happened in Japan?
  • With record surge of flooding predicted, what should New Jersey do about those homes and businesses repeatedly incurring damage because they are located in the flood zone?
  • Should the state do more to ensure utilities are adequately prepared for such storms? If so, what are the options — regulations, incentives, fines, liability, and so on?
