A month’s worth of rain fell in one day. An ice storm knocked out power for over a week. Underpasses and rail tracks were flooded. The summer was the hottest since 1880. Climate change is a defining challenge of our time. But how can communities develop a plan for the future?
Join RCIScience and The Institute for Science, Society and Policy for an exploration of how communities will be affected by climate change, how society needs to adapt to cope with these changes, and what type of policies are needed to deal with them.
