What might the future look like if we took climate change seriously?
Article by Merrian Borgeson, Senior Scientist, Energy and Transportation, San Francisco
Intro by Joseph Oldham, Statewide Local Government Energy Efficiency Best Practices Coordinator, LGC
In my position as Statewide Local Government Energy Efficiency Coordinator, I receive a great number of emails each day. Many of the items are notices about tools, training, seminars, articles about technology, etc. I sort through these and send along to my subscribers anything that I feel will be useful in their efforts to promote energy efficiency and reduce green house gases. I rarely receive blog posts, so when this one from Merrian Borgeson came through and it had such a compelling title, I had to read it carefully. What I found was that she had taken the very complex issue of what we should do as a nation to adapt to climate change, and distilled it down to three main actions. By doing so, she has made understanding what to do very simple and easy for layman in this subject to get their arms around it. And that is what it will take to get action on the complex and polarizing issue of climate change; we have to make the action steps simple to understand. I encourage you to read Merrian’s blog post and hopefully it will help simplify your view of the actions we need to be taking at the local level to adapt to and combat the impacts of climate change.[downloadbox]Read the article:
