USGS Scientist Interviewed About Climate Change for Planned HBO Program

A representative of the cable television network Home Box Office (HBO) interviewed U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientist Jeff Williams (Woods Hole, MA) by telephone on December 3, 2004, in connection with research that the network is conducting for a TV program on climate change and its effects on sea-level rise, coastal change, wetland loss, and increased storminess in coastal areas. Although the initial discussion focused on the striking effects of sea-level rise (approx 1 m per 100 yr) in low-lying areas such as Louisiana, Jeff encouraged the researchers to broaden their scope to include other major population centers likely to be affected by predicted increases in sea-level rise. Jeff offered contacts for interviews, field trips, and related topics in Louisiana, as well as in the Chesapeake Bay and Cape Cod areas; he hopes for further contact during the filming process if the ideas are accepted by HBO management.
