Rosanna Xia on California against the sea
Rosanna Xia, a Los Angeles Times environmental reporter and Pulitzer Prize finalist, joins us to unravel a crisis that’s reshaping California’s iconic 1,200-mile coastline. But this isn’t just a Golden State issue; it’s a global wake-up call. Xia’s frontline reporting and her new book “California Against the Sea,” reveals that we’re at a crossroads: either we hurtle headlong into environmental disaster or pivot toward a new paradigm of coastal stewardship. This episode dives into the urgent need to redefine “resilience” in the face of climate change. Forget seawalls and beach replenishment; Xia is talking about a seismic shift in our relationship with the planet.
