We know the climate is warming, and we know there are direct impacts on our health. Unlike many other climate narratives, Bonnie Schneider will leave you with tangible tools you can use to adapt and adjust to the warming world.
Human population has exploded since the shift to agrarian societies 12,000 years ago with agriculture improving food availability. Short- and long-range weather predictions aid the agriculture industry, and climate change may cause us to rethink how and where we get and grow our food in the future.
We have three main prongs contributing to more destructive fires: first is unfortunately our fire management to put out every fire, second is encroachment of large numbers of people into the wildland urban interface, and third is the changing climate. It's not an easy question to solve for sure.
"We don't have to wait 50 years in the future. The climate we live in right now is different than the climate that individuals 50 years ago lived in. And we need to make sure that public health is understanding those challenges and providing them the best information and resources available."
"Humans have adapted to different climates since we've been on the planet. So we need to get comfortable being uncomfortable and adapt to a warmer world. And we certainly need to do our best to be better stewards of the Earth from a mitigation standpoint using measured renewable energy."
