Is Superstorm Sandy a Wake-Up Call?

Hosted by

During this year's presidential campaign, there's been almost a dead silence on climate change. New York's Governor Andrew Cuomo says it's time to start paying attention. He warns that an old infrastructure is now at risk from new weather patterns and he wants to prepare for the next one. Scientists say it's about time. Should beach houses become things of the past?  Should low-lying city pavement be turned into sponges to accommodate flooding?
