Videos to examine 'Climate Change in Connecticut'

In the run up to the Nov. 30 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris, YaleNews will present a series of videos looking at various aspects of climate change happening in the shores and natural habitats that surround us here in Connecticut.

This debut video looks at how Connecticut residents respond to hurricane warnings.

A team led by Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies researcher Jennifer Marlon found that most Connecticut coast residents underestimate the threat from large storms like hurricanes and Nor'Easters. Communication is key here: Seventy percent of coastal residents said they were unsure or unaware whether they were even located in an evacuation zone.
