  1. Hi Claire!

    You already know this, but yes, I’m always thinking about adaptation to climate change. I gave an interview on climate adaptation policy barriers to a researcher on Friday and recommended that she follow your blog. In my view, the main hook with climate adaptation is losing the ability to use the past as the basis of judgment for the future (although this was probably always a poor approximation). That, and the greater amplitude of extreme weather events. However, we are probably going to be able to use ordinary plans and policies, and just adapt them. Extreme weather events also create some additional sense of urgency.
