Happening This Week
The world is already locked in 1.5°C of warming, the World Bank warns in a new report. This mere 1.5 degree will bring more weather extremes: heat waves, drought, tropical storms, but also more extreme cold and snow in parts of the world.
Buffalo, NY, experienced the disruptive effects of climate change head on last week when a snowstorm dumped 5 ft of snow. Read our blog post on the regional economic impacts of the storm, and what it has to do with climate change.
These impacts emphasize the importance of climate adaptation for public and private decision-makers alike. The White House just released a great tool for local adaptation planning to that effect: toolkit.climate.gov. And our applications are geared specifically to the needs to large corporations - contact us for more details.
