Dutch homes float with the climate
Marketplace Morning Report visits the Netherlands where a majority of the country is below sea level. Estimates indicate that climate change could raise water levels an additional 25 percent. Dutch engineers are building houses that float as needed to cope with flooding. Innovators plan to export the technology. Rico Gagliano checks out the climate-proof homes and looks into whether it will work.

Dutch plan for flooding: Higher ground
Marketplace returns to the Netherlands to report on “extreme landscape architecture.” The Dutch are welcoming flood waters into valleys that are now home to Dutch farms and building them a new one … higher in the sky.

Tomorrow: The Big Fix
Marketplace Morning Report examines human projects underway to save animals facing extinction due in part to global warming. And “geo-engineering” initiatives to the climate crisis that could change things without you having to change your lifestyle.
