It was a technological marvel that was going to change the way that people have dealt with the environment,” Deirdre Clemente, University of Nevada, Las Vegas and the public history professor, told Fox News. “But as we’ve learned from it, and, of course, we can also learn many other different types of ways to use the technology of today, is that it can create just as many problems as we can think of is that it solves the problem, and people are still going to be vulnerable to the elements as much now, if we can, then.”
