In the wake of the White House’s climate blitz earlier this month, including the latest National Climate Assessment release, I find myself feeling strangely optimistic that America finally might be ready to prepare our homes, cities and public spaces for the impacts of climate change — particularly the effects of sea level rise.
Normally my optimism would be tempered by the sobering fact that Americans today still rank climate change and global warming dead last on the list of environmental priorities for the country.
But I am encouraged and inspired by the rise of what I’m calling resiliency catalysts. These are tools that broaden public awareness on climate change and drive implementation of adaptation strategies. At the cutting edge of this movement are powerful climate visualization tools that, on a higher level, show rather than tell the story of our future.
