This blog is adapting, too

Check out the new tagline: Adapting Locally, Networking Globally.

And the new description: Collecting reports of local climate change impacts and responses from around the world, I'm accumulating a database that can be used for strategic planning by other localities as lessons learned, best practices and valuable contacts.

We're on the verge of new social movement. Where it's going is hard to tell at this point, but the pressures to change and adapt are growing. This year will be regarded from the future as a tipping point where the combined effects of extreme weather, economics and dysfunctional government spurred many people to adopt new viewpoints on the way ahead.

Business as usual just ain't gonna cut it from now on. Especially if you've got kids and grandkids, this is a time to begin thinking and acting adaptively. The path ahead may not be clear, but the articles I'm gathering here show that it's smart to stay light on your feet.

Hi Cliff,
I like your new banner approach...doing what you can locally to make the smallest 'footprint' of what you do while you're here can be translated to the 'as above, so below' concept for our children and future generations...

Thanks, Rico. It's time to open up this dialogue. I understand it's a complex topic, but I'm sure there's plenty of wisdom, experience and knowledge to be shared.
