Weekly Poll (6)


The Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change attributes at least 50% of rising sea levels to thermal expansion since 1971 and warns that sea levels now threaten saltwater intrusion on coastal infrastructure worldwide. Do you believe coastal infrastructure has been properly prepared and protected for these rising sea levels?


The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory recently confirmed that the U.S. Green Building Council is piloting a new credit for the installation of cool exterior walls in new homes, schools and commercial buildings for the purpose of mitigating urban heat islands. Do you think the pilot credit will inspire more facility owners to integrate cool walls?


In November, the Biden-Harris transition team announced a plan to tackle climate change. Do you think Congress will support carbon capturing and storage infrastructure projects?


Following NYC’s initiatives set by the Climate Mobilization Act, Mayor Bill de Blasio recently announced plans to conduct deep energy retrofits in nine city facilities, in addition to plans for identifying another 28 facilities for future retrofits. The initiative aims to cut energy usage by more than 50%. Do you believe the plan will be successful?


As reported by the Center for Climate Integrity early last month, various U.S. coastal communities are expected to pay $416 billion in seawall protection services over the next 20 years. Do you think all 50,000 miles worth of coastal barriers will be successfully installed or will we see the abandonment of waterfront communities?
