Robert Verchick is a legal scholar in climate change and disaster policy who designed climate-resilience programs in the Obama administration. He is the Gauthier-St. Martin Eminent Scholar and Chair in Environmental Law at Loyola University New Orleans and is a senior fellow in disaster resilience at Tulane University. His most recent book, The Octopus in the Parking Garage: A Call for Climate Resilience (Columbia University Press, 2023), empowers nonexpert readers to face the climate crisis and shows what we can do to adapt and thrive.

At Radcliffe, Verchick is writing a book for nonexperts about how we can harness the power of government, science, and local wisdom to rescue the oceans from climate breakdown.
