Shake it Off

About 15 million years ago, Los Angeles was at the bottom of the ocean. Climate change means land that’s been high and dry for millennia is getting inundated by water again. What do terms like “500-year flood” mean when we have one every ten years? And what can engineering do to make Southern California’s new floodplains survivable?

H2-Uh-Oh

Higher and Drier

The amount of water on Earth hasn’t changed appreciably since Caesar and Cleopatra took a little cruise on the Nile. But the hydrologic cycle has changed where that water goes – and we are heading up a very dry creek. California has always teetered on the edge of drought, but hereafter, how we eat, drink, and even survive depends more than ever on the ingenuity of science and human willingness to suck it up by not sucking down so much water.

The Flames in Our Future

In the past, fires often renewed and even enriched California, like a mythical phoenix. But California feels only menaced and exhausted by them now. How have humans changed fire patterns? How will fire change our everyday lives, and what does standing up to fire’s “new abnormal” mean? Can science tell us where and how we fight, and when we just get out of fire’s way?

There’s No Place That’s Home: Humans in Extreme-Climate Places

Night in the City: L.A. After Dark

This conversation brings to light the history of electricity in Los Angeles and the positive and negative impacts it has on all living things. It is an evening talk as part of the series Night in the City: L.A. After Dark. Coproduced by the Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County and the Huntington-USC Institute on California and the West.

Night in the City: L.A. After Dark

Four Wheels, Two Wheels, No Wheels

L.A.’s first car hit the street 120 years ago, and through the smog and spaghetti-bowl freeways, L.A. is renowned for its car culture (and traffic). But we're starting to shift gears around here. We flirt with electric cars, pile into ride shares, trick out our bicycles, and hop aboard the Expo Line. In a city built for internal combustion, are we changing the rules of the road?
