The article relies largely on the observations of Jesse Keenan, a lecturer at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design who studies urban development and climate adaptation. He was in Duluth March 19 for the “Our Climate Futures Conference” at the University of Minnesota Duluth. Video of his speech is below.
