Responding to climate change creates a new industry in New Jersey
Andy Raichle, vice president of Matrix New World, writes: "America's tragedies have long been a breeding ground for business growth. Some of our nation's finest accomplishments are the result of trying circumstances, including modern consumer-based banking during the 1920s Great Depression, public air travel in the 1940s during World War II, and the interstate highway system during the 1950s Cold War.
"In the engineering world, especially here in New Jersey, we find ourselves in the nascent stages of an industry that is responding to unusual weather events and climate change predictions that threaten our daily life and our long-term socioeconomics."
