Through numerous special reports, Josh has developed his expertise on how urban and natural environments interact and what cities can do to reduce greenhouse gas pollution and grow more resilient against rising sea levels and harsher weather.
Two of his series in particular have drawn praise:
The first, an exclusive report on how the administration of then-Mayor Michael Bloomberg planned a multibillion-dollar, multiyear resiliency plan for New York City. This plan remains the blueprint for retrofitting City infrastructure to an era of higher sea levels and more severe weather disturbances. It serves as a model for other coastal cities.
The second, Fighting the Tide, is a multi-part interactive series datelined The Netherlands, on how the Dutch have long protected a nation largely below sea level -- and what cities like New York can learn from their expertise.
