What Disasterology Can Tell Us About the Climate Crisis | Samantha Montano, Ph.D. | [email protected]

Hurricane Katrina left New Orleans in ruins and fueled a passion in a teenager who offered to help. Many tragedies later, this young woman has emerged as a disasterologist in search of answers. Dr. Samantha Montano is a disasterologist with a research focus on emergency management. She has a doctorate in emergency management from North Dakota State University. She is currently an assistant professor of Emergency Management at Massachusetts Maritime Academy and the author of Disasterology: Dispatches From The Frontlines of The Climate Crisis. Growing up in Cape Elizabeth instilled in her a love for the coast that guides her efforts to ready coastal communities for the consequences of the climate crisis and pursue disaster justice. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
