The climate is changing, and how we cope with reduced snowpack in the Sierras, rising sea levels on the edges of the Bay and changing weather patterns will dramatically affect planning in our region. SPUR’s new report on climate change adaptation reflects two years of work evaluating climate change impacts and policies, and includes recommendations for how the Bay Area can prepare. Join Laura Tam of SPUR, Steve Goldbeck of the Bay Conservation and Development Commission, Miriam Rotkin-Ellman of the Natural Resources Defense Council, Xantha Bruso of PG&E and other study participants to discuss what the future may hold and how we should plan ahead.
