Adapting to Climate Change – Beth Gibbons, Adaptation Professionals

“We now have an appetite for intervention. There’s a willingness because we are all at a point where the impacts are being felt so broadly…The urgency is being met with a will to act.” Beth Gibbons on Electric Ladies podcast

Local leaders are managing the very real devastation to their communities and economies caused by extreme weather events, while much-needed resources from the federal government are tied up in political wrangling over whether climate change is real.

The people on the ground dealing with these effects are called “adaptation professionals,” so Electric Ladies host Joan Michelson went to them to find out what’s happening on the ground. Listen to her startling conversation with Beth Gibbons, Executive Director of Adaptation Professionals for great insights on all sides of this life-threatening, economy-threatening, polarizing issue. (This was recorded under our previous name, Green Connections Radio.)

You’ll learn:

“The federal government is uniquely positioned, uniquely powerful and uniquely funded to create the kind of research we need right now about what are the risks, what are the challenges, what is the way forward, and the government should be held accountable to deliver those resources .” Beth Gibbons on Electric Ladies
