By the time we get to the 2020s, the effects climate change is having on the planet’s ecosystems will be more than just a political issue.
And, in the meantime, we need to take action.
We have to take care of the people, animals, plants, and wildlife we care about, which is why we are making sure our cities are designed to adapt to the changing climate.
Climate adaptation is the act of taking the necessary actions to adapt the climate system to meet our future needs.
To learn more about how cities can help adapt to climate change, check out the latest chapter of The American Conservatory of Environmental Medicine.
In this episode, Dr. Robert Hutton will discuss the importance of adapting to climate changes and how cities have the ability to help with adaptation.
We’ll also get an overview of what climate change means for people and the world.
In the second part of this episode of The Conservatory, Drs.
Scott G. Smith and Robert H. Smith will discuss what people can do to help communities adapt to these changing times.
In these last two episodes, we’ll learn about how the United States, the U.K., Canada, Australia, and others have responded to climate-related disasters.
