Kim Stanley Robinson's New York 2140
Science and Fiction: Envisioning our Region's Future Under Extreme Sea-Level Rise
Public talk, panel discussion, and book signing
April 5, 2017
Rutgers Academic Building, 15 Seminary Place, New Brunswick, NJ
Novelist Kim Stanley Robinson will read from and discuss his new novel, New York 2140, which presents a vision of our region in a future of extreme sea-level rise. After his talk, Robinson will join a panel of distinguished Rutgers faculty with expertise in climate science (Robert Kopp), urban planning (Clinton Andrews), urban agriculture (Laura Lawson), and the environmental humanities (Jorge Marcone). The panel will discuss the novel and its vision. A book signing opportunity will follow.
Kim Stanley Robinson is a New York Times bestselling author and recipient of the Hugo, Nebula, and Locus awards. He is the author of more than twenty books, including the bestselling Mars trilogy and the critically acclaimed Forty Signs of Rain, The Years of Rice and Salt and 2312. In 2008, he was named a "Hero of the Environment" by Time magazine, and he works with the Sierra Nevada Research Institute. He lives in Davis, California.

Congratulations to RCI Affiliate Dave Robinson who has been awarded the American Association of Geographers Lifetime Achievement Award!
The AAG citation reads: The 2017 AAG Life Achievement Honors is granted to Professor David Robinson from the Department of Geography at Rutgers University. Robinson is a multi-dimensional geographer who has achieved extraordinary success and impact in many domains simultaneously. As a researcher, he is a leading figure in the fields of climate science and climatology and one of the world's foremost experts on global snow cover. As New Jersey State Climatologist for the past 25 years, he is among the most publicly prominent geographers in the New York-New Jersey region, granting hundreds of media interviews each year while also overseeing a publicly accessible statewide climate and weather data network. As a long-serving department chair at Rutgers, Robinson fostered a culture of success that combined scholarly achievement with mentorship, collegiality and mutual respect among all members of the department.
Rutgers-led New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance (NJCAA) awarded 2016 Outstanding Floodplain Management Award
The Rutgers-led New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance (NJCAA) was awarded the 2016 Outstanding Floodplain Management Award for "progressive collaborative work on climate change preparedness in New Jersey"by the New Jersey Association for Floodplain Management at its 12th annual conference in Atlantic City in October. Facilitated by Jeanne Herb of the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, Rutgers University and Marjorie Kaplan, Associate Director of the Rutgers Climate Institute, the Alliance is a network of policymakers, public and private sector practitioners, academics and NGO and business leaders designed to build climate change preparedness capacity in New Jersey. Former New Jersey Governors Tom Kean and Jim Florio are Honorary Co-Chairs and its Advisory Committee is Chaired by Michael Catania, Executive Director, Duke Farms and Kathleen Ellis, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of New Jersey Natural Gas. It has issued over 30 reports and developed tools, videos, resources and provided support in addressing climate change preparedness for New Jersey. Most recently it released three documents regarding sea-level rise in New Jersey.
Read the October 2016 reports related to the New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance Science and Technical Advisory Panel on Sea-Level Rise and Coastal Storms: Assessing New Jersey’s Exposure to Sea-Level Rise and Coastal Storms: Report of the New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance Science and Technical Advisory Panel; Assessing New Jersey’s Exposure to Sea-Level Rise and Coastal Storms: A Companion Report to the New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance Science and Technical Advisory Panel Report; Integrating Science into Coastal Resilience Planning and Decision Making available here.
Ms. Laura Tessieri, New Jersey Association For Floodplain Management presents "Outstanding Floodplain Management Award" to Dr. Marjorie Kaplan, Rutgers Climate Institute, who accepted the award on behalf of the New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance.
News in March 2017
Congratulations to RCI affiliate Laura Schneider on being named a Fulbright Research US Scholar for Colombia. Laura’s project is titled Mapping the spatial configuration of landscapes in the Orinoquia region of Colombia and modeling potential landscape change in an era of post-conflict.
Congratulations to RCI affiliate and assistant professor Malin L. Pinsky, the principal investigator of a NOAA award of $86,036 for the project Projecting and Communicating Changes in North American Species Distributions.
The NJ Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) unveiled the NJ Fostering Regional Adaptation through Municipal Economic Scenarios (FRAMES) program during a public engagement session in February 2016. This is a three year project to plan for possible sea-level rise through 2100 funded by a NOAA grant worth $898,656. Partners on the project include the NJDEP, Rutgers University, and Louis Berger and Associations. RCI affiliate Lisa Auermiller and RCI Associate Director Marjorie Kaplan are the Rutgers Co-PIs. The project focuses on 15 New Jersey shore towns and developing ways to protect community assets.
Air pollutants are known to increase the incidence of lung disease, but a new study co-authored by RCI affiliate Howard Kipen integrates the latest science into a general framework for interpreting the adversity of the human health effects of air pollution. The report notes a link between air pollutants and an increase in cases of heart disease. According to the findings, more cases of heart disease are linked to air pollution than lung disease. In addition to lung disease and heart disease, type 2 diabetes has been linked to increased exposure of air pollutants.A stretch of unseasonably warm weather has paved the way for an early allergy season, according to RCI affiliate Dr. Leonard Bielory in a NJ 101.5 interview. The allergy season in New Jersey typically starts around March 15th, but with a head start on warm weather, the trees are even more primed to release pollen when consistent warm weather comes.
Unseasonably warm weather in late February is an ominous sign for tree farmers. An early bloom puts farmers on edge, because hard freezes often occur into April. According to RCI affiliate Dave Robinson in a NJ 101.5 interview, early blooming trees are far more vulnerable to cold snaps in late March and April. Given a pattern with above normal temperatures followed by below normal temperatures, it is possible that fruit trees across New Jersey will bloom early, only to succumb to a hard freeze later in the season.
The Rutgers Raritan River Consortium awarded five mini grants to Rutgers faculty members to support research on the Raritan river, basin, and bay. Grants were received by RCI affiliates Olaf Jensen and Josh Kohut of the Department of Marine and Coastal Sciences. The grants amount to $7,500 each. The research supports the Rutgers' Sustainable Raritan River Initiative, to help the Raritan river system meet the goals of the Clean Water Act as well as restoring the river running through Rutgers University. More information can be found here.
