A visitor to Stockton’s inaugural “Coast Day” 2018 checks out a virtual reality simulation of the proposed wind mills off the coast of Atlantic City.

ATLANTIC CITY – John Froonjian, interim executive director of the William J. Hughes Center for Public Policy at Stockton University, will present the findings of a new statewide poll on climate change and coastal issues 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13 at the Stockton University Academic Center, 3711 Atlantic Ave.

The poll, recently completed by the Stockton Polling Institute, will address New Jersey residents’ opinions on climate change in general and as it applies to New Jersey. Topics include dunes, drilling and wind power.

The results also compare statewide responses with responses from residents who live in the six counties along the New Jersey coast and Delaware Bay.

The presentation is part of Stockton’s second annual “Coast Day” being held at Stockton Atlantic City, which also includes other activities and presentations.

Other presenters include Kim McKenna from the Stockton Coastal Research Center who will speak on “What Happens to a Beach During a Storm,” and Mark Sullivan from Stockton’s Marine Science Program and Emily Pirl from the Barnegat Bay Partnership.

A complete schedule is at stockton.edu/coastday.
