Climate Adaptation

CLIMATE ADAPTATION

I want to punch climate change in the face. A blog about the interactions between the built environment, people, and nature.

Map of significant climate events in 2012. Usually we think in terms of one event to the next. We name that event (Katrina, Nemo, etc.) and move on to the clean up phase. But collectively, when seen in one snap shot of an entire year, I cannot help but think we are in big, big trouble. Governments cannot possibly manage all this strife, year after year, decade after decade. Something has got to give, or possibly collapse. Sorry for the doom reflection, but sheesh. Look at all these big events. So much life lost. Such high costs to taxpayers.
