Green Dreams, a series of discussions on utopian architecture, science and ecology, presents "Coastal Erosion," in which The New York Times' John Schwartz will discuss his recent article "Left To Louisiana's Tides, a Village Fights for Time."

John Schwartz is a reporter at The New York Times, where he has written about human spaceflight, science, business, law and many other topics that have taken him from the Mojave Desert to Moscow, and from Nanjing to Nashville; he has explored the devastation of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, tumbled in zero gravity, flown a jetpack, and reported stories from river dredges, helicopters and sewers. He also writes a humor column on investing for the Times. A native of Galveston, Texas, John is married to Jeanne Mixon, his college sweetheart. They have three children. He is the author of This Is the Year I Put My Financial Life in Order, a financial memoir and guide.
