The Battle of Buxton (Rebroadcast)



The town of Buxton, North Carolina loves their lighthouse. But in the 1970s, the ocean threatened to swallow it up. For the next three decades, they fought an intense political battle over what to do. Fight back against the forces of nature, or retreat? It’s a small preview of what’s to come in a time of rising seas. We team up with 99% Invisible to tell the story.

Note: This is a rebroadcast from January 2018. We’ll have a new episode of Cited for you next week.
