Futurist Joel Barker's Implications Wheel was used to explore four key issues following Hurricane Katrina.  Over 400 citizens were involved in different explorations of key issues. A sample from one of these is posted in the "examples" section of the website.  This Scoop.It topic will identify possible issues that could be, should be explored.

 

Implications of Hurricane Sandy unfolded for years -- and are still unfolding.  Implications of Hurricanes Irma and Harvey will likely be even more widespread and over a longer time range.  All are significant -- and they need to be explored for both the short and long-term positives and negatives.

Hurricanes Irma, Harvey and Maria may Bring Tidal Waves of Changes to Building Codes1

Hurricanes Irma, Harvey and Maria may Bring Tidal Waves of Changes to Building Codes1 | Hurricanes Irma - Harvey - Sandy Exploring Implications | Scoop.it
The 2017 hurricane season was considered to be unprecedented by many observers, but it may become the new normal.
