Why Is COVID-19 Taken More Seriously Than Climate Change?

March 21st, 2020 | by Barry A.F.

Climate change is an existential threat to humanity. We are on a trajectory to destroying a livable climate. This has been modeled, we know why it's happening, how it works, and how to fight it. We also have the technology to defeat it. And bonus, that technology is cost effective

March 19th, 2020 | by Cynthia Shahan

Confirming what you might have sensed, it is not simply you sweating more than expected (or enjoying spring in the North when it is generally winter) — indeed, the whole planet is sweating, as February 2020 ranked as the second-hottest February in the 141-year global climate record, according to scientists at NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information


What Does Climate Adaptation Look Like?
