New Jersey May Turn Their Wetlands Into A 'Climate Change' National Park

By Aimee Lutkin

The New Jersey Meadowlands is composed of low-lying wetlands. Unfortunately, the wetlands end up being the ground which is most vulnerable to sea water that rises due to climate change. But a New York-area research and planning nonprofit called the Regional Planning Association (RPA) suggests that they could turn this weakness into an asset.

Fast Company reports that the RPA would like to turn the area into the nation's first "Climate Change National Park."
