The Jersey Shore is a slice of heaven that I’ve enjoyed my entire life. As a kid it was my family’s vacation destination and as an adult it’s now my home. But how things have changed! Millions of people from the tri-state area and beyond venture here yearly to enjoy beaches, boardwalks, and various attractions, making tourism a significant industry in the Garden State, providing much needed jobs and dollars. The question to consider is: what will the Jersey Shore be like for your kids and grandkids, and will they still have the same opportunity to enjoy it as we do right now? With the sea level predicted to rise and extreme weather events like Sandy expected to become more common, what will the Jersey Shore look like for future generations? Gery Juleff hosts The Green Hour, a radio show on PANJ Radio which explores local and global issues on the environment and sustainability, including energy, the economy and business, technology, food and farming, health, and education. Gery worked for the British Foreign Service for 25 years, mainly in Africa and Brazil. His last job in the Foreign Office was in London heading a team dealing with Climate Change, Renewable Energy Technology and Energy Security policy issues. He moved to NJ in 2012 and has consulted on biofuels and the bio-economy, worked as a rep for a renewable energy company, and is now a trustee at the Sourlands Conservancy. Gery is especially conscious of the environment and hopes his children and grandchildren will have the opportunity to enjoy this beautiful area in the years to come.
