  • And its coastal cities that face the greatest challenge .*
  • Cities are facing a population explosion. Half the world’s population is now urban – adding 60 million a year. Like adding a new Canberra every 2.1 days. *
  • With that population explosion has come urban environmental decay….. With water pollution …..*
  • With that population explosion has come urban environmental decay….. With water pollution …..*
  • With that population explosion has come urban environmental decay….. With water pollution …..*
  • Many cities are choked with air pollution from industry and coal fired power plants..*….and
  • Emissions from fossil fuel powered automobiles .*
  • But the greatest existential threat cities face………*
  • Sea level rise has the potential to displace tens and perhaps hundreds of millions of people……*. .
  • Inundate infrastructure…………..*
  • create drought………..*
  • And in many cases severe water stress.*
  • And worsen coastal flooding. *
  • And intensity of coastal storms………and *
  • Create economic catastrophe for local governments and their economies . *
  • Let me take a moment to make a virtual fly-thru of my city of Honolulu to look at just a few of the potential impacts of sea level rise. The City of Honolulu is the entire island of Oahu, some 680 sq. miles and a population of about a million.
  • If you watch closely, I’ll show you how our coast will change with 1 meter of sea level rise.
  • Until you look carefully at the areas that will be inundated . *
  • The populations *………..
  • Of coastal towns like this Ewa Beach community*……
  • Will be displaced .*
  • And some of the more remote rural neighborhoods…..*
  • Will have their one road access cutoff and become completely isolated. *
  • Will have their one road access cutoff and become completely isolated. *
  • Lets go back and look closely at how urban Honolulu will fair with 1 meter of sea level rise. As you can see, most of the island’s population is squeezed between the mountains and the ocean. In fact this entire coastal plain is an old coral reef that was formed during an earlier global warming.*
  • Lets zero in to this urban core……. *
  • AND SEE THE EFFECTS OF SEA LEVEL RISE.*
  • AS YOU CAN SEE, THE IMPACT HERE IS QUITE DRAMATIC. *
  • Lets look at satellite imagery of that area…… *
  • And the effects of 1 meter of rise. *
  • Along with……*
  • The City’s main, downtown, 70 million gallon/day, sewage treatment plant is inundated. *
  • critical pump stations and the island’s main computerized wastewater operations center. *
  • The Reef Runway….*
  • a critical portion of the international airport is flooded…… *
  • as well as the adjoining……*
  • Hickam Air Force base. *
  • As an island, almost everything comes in on ship…..*
  • With 1 meter of rise Honolulu’s cargo operations are also inundated. *
  • In fact, large portions of the downtown itself……*
  • will be lost with sea level rise…displacing residents, business centers, commerce, and waterfront shopping complexes. *
  • Energy systems will be affected as well…….*
  • Including the central downtown electrical substation. *
  • Critical transportation links will be cut…*
  • such as key east-west arterials . *
  • Let’s continue the virtual fly-thru of the urban core. The coastal inundation from sea level rise will also impact the city’s light industry, its retail centers and its civic facilities. *
  • As you can see…….*
  • the change in shoreline will be quite extreme. *
  • Probably the largest impact will come in the heart of our tourist center. *
  • This is the Waikiki Peninsula, the core of the State’s tourism industry and the destination of 5 to 6 million visitors each year. *
  • And as you can see, the projected sea level rise completely inundates the entire area. *
  • And as you can see, the projected sea level rise completely inundates the entire area. *
  • The bulk of the State’s hotel rooms will be lost. … *
  • Let me high-light some of the impacts…..*
  • The bulk of the State’s hotel rooms will be lost. … *
  • And the 30,000 local residents who live in Waikiki would be displaced. *
  • And of course, enormous amounts of infrastructure…..sewers, storm water systems, utilities, pump stations….would all be destroyed. *
  • Now all of this is going to have a devastating financial impact on local governments. As coastal areas are inundated the city’s most valuable real estate will become worthless and property tax revenues will plummet. At the same time cities will be facing enormous cost increases as they attempt to rebuild and relocate coastal infrastructure, schools, and other public facilities. This will probably mean dramatic cuts in city services….and many cities will probably go bankrupt.
  • The fundamental problem is that cities aren’t designed or managed to be sustainable or resilient!
  • So what is this new paradigm we need in order to navigate to a sustainable future???
  • Last year I asked Gordon Grau to compile a synopsis of the climate work that Sea Grant was already doing. It was both surprising and impressive. Here are just a few of initiatives….

  • Our challenge is to redesign cities to be more sustainable and resilient in the face of climate change.
  • In fact, we would be wise to model cities after natural ecosystems, where all components are interconnected into a stable system . In our urban ecosystems we need to integrate land use, transportation, energy systems, urban infrastructure, resource recovery and the economy with comprehensive planning and management .

  • So what is this new paradigm we need in order to navigate to a sustainable future???
  • Perhaps most importantly, to bring about these changes in local governance we need leadership………informed and committed local government leadership.
  • That sustainability plan must include mitigating and adapting to climate change and building resiliency.
  • First of all we need to realize that cities are actually complex interactive systems and they need to be managed as complex systems. We need to understand all the inter-relationships between all the functions in the city and take an enterprise-wide approach to planning and management.
  • We need new green building codes mandating energy efficient design……
  • Any climate change adaptation plan needs to begin by evaluating the potential impacts of climate change on land use.
  • Adapting to climate change gives us the opportunity to re-plan and re-design our cities in a sustainable way.
  • We are going to have to re-do our building codes to take into consideration more severe storms, higher temperatures, more rain, etc.
  • Adaptation brings with it a rats nest of legal problems. (Hotel vested rights issue, apartment owner example)
  • In many cases, to adapt to sea level rise, we may have to relocate coastal arterials.
  • And we need to get away from the inefficient and polluting large coal fired plant and instead focus on distributed energy systems. (Honolulu City Hall – waste syn-gas co-gen plant, cut energy needed from grid by 80%)
  • We need to diversify our primary energy production into a portfolio of renewable technologies.
  • In many communities, climate change is going to severely disrupt local water systems thru drought and saltwater intrusion into freshwater aquifers.
  • A major program is the GIS support for City emergency response operations. Even before 9/11, we have been providing GIS capabilities to the City’s EOC. Now we are integrating GIS data with other products that would be used in the event of hurricanes or other emergency situations. We should note that Police, Fire, and EMS all are all using GIS for a variety of public safety and health programs. Supporting these programs has been a priority of the City’s GIS.
  • One of the ways we inspect our sewer lines is by the use of special TV cameras. 3 crews are out every day to inspect laterals upto the main line Big trunk lines inspected by large “dune buggy” camera These inspections have helped cut sewer spills by 86 %
  • The Traffic Control Center can monitor roads and freeways with 90 live cameras. Within 6 months the number will grow to 140 – throughout the urban core. Residents can watch these same cameras on TV or the Internet. Some cab drivers in town are doing this from their cars so they can pick the fastest route

  • Global Positioning Satellites are used to travel the locations of all ambulances The computer than recommends the closet unit to an emergency and calculates the travel time This is also tied into the GIS system and a map of the location is displayed and quickest route to the emergency Also displays information like access codes for gated communities and condominiums Scripted pre-arrival medical advice shows on a split screen to assist the dispatcher give critical medical to the caller

  • Answer- Sea Grant has done a great deal but it can play a far greater role.
  • Sea Grant’s Unique Attributes *University Partnerships *Diversity of Research Talent *Trusted/Experienced Coastal Extension Service
  • Growing National Consensus For extensive and immediate extension services related to mediation and adaptation to climate change
  • Sea Grant Extension Ideally positioned to take a leadership role in this multi-jurisdictional extension effort, extending NOAA-wide information and expertise
  • Sea Grant Climate Extension The work Sea Grant is doing now just scratches the surface of national need. To effectively deal with the climate challenge Sea Grant Extension will need a substantial increase in resources and funding.
  • The Challenge Redesign Coastal Cities to be More Sustainable and Resilient in the Face of Climate Change
  • Proposal - NOAA Sea Grant Sustainable Coastal Community Climate Change Initiative Utilize NOAA Sea Grant and other NOAA expertise to facilitate coastal urban planning that integrates land use, transportation, energy, natural resource, economic, and climate change mitigation and adaptation components.
  • Proposal NOAA Climate Service should contract with Sea Grant to provide coastal climate extension services and carry out that initiative
  • The Sea Grant Goal Every Coastal Local Government to Develop a Comprehensive Sustainability Plan to include Climate Change …. Mitigation Plans Adaptation Plans Resiliency Plans
  • What would this Sea Grant Sustainable Coastal Community Climate Change Initiative involve?
  • Sea Grant Coastal Community Sustainability Initiative Public Education & Capacity Building Sustainability must be grassroots based. We have failed as educators . Only 40% of US citizens “believe” in global warming.
  • Barrier to Action – Ignorance The U.S. – Leader or Obstacle ? U.S. Senator on TV telling the public that global warming is a hoax.
  • Barrier to Action- Disinformation The disinformation campaign waged by special interests about global warming is the major stumbling block to sustainable energy policies and program funding.
