Adapt!

Climate Change Hits Home
Event detail
 

We have known about the perils of climate change for more than two decades. But global efforts to slow it down by reducing greenhouse-gas emissions have largely failed. Although we must do everything in our power to stop climate change, some of its impacts are now inevitable.  Climate change adaptation — preparing for heat waves, drought, and sea level rise — is now essential.

This exhibition, created by SPUR*, surveys the likely impacts of climate change to the San Francisco Bay Area, which will worsen over the next 100 years and beyond.  SPUR recommends more than 30 adaptation strategies for minimizing our region’s vulnerabilities to the potentially catastrophic effects of uncontrolled global warming.

The exhibition is curated by SPUR’s Sustainable Development Policy Director, Laura Tam, based on the work of SPUR’s blue-ribbon task force on climate adaptation, and designed by Leon Yu.

*San Francisco Planning + Urban Research Association, a member supported non-profit organization.  Through research, education and advocacy, SPUR promotes good planning and good government in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Sponsored by the Stegner Environmental Center.  This is a Green Stacks exhibit.
