        Investing in Green Technology: Low Cost Environmental Design | Extreme Realities

        In this video segment from Journey to Planet Earth: Extreme Realities, innovations in architectural engineering demonstrate how low cost environmental design can lessen wind and flood damage in the event of extreme weather due to climate change. Currently, extreme weather events impacting coastal areas around the world cost a total of $6 billion per year in damage. Investment into green technologies like state-of-the-art sea walls, climate-ready buildings, floating homes, and floodgates can prevent a one trillion dollar loss per year and reduce an area’s vulnerability to extreme weather events in the future.
