“We need to rethink our transportation and agricultural systems, our city planning and water and sewer …. So many of those things have been designed for the climate of the past 100 years and not for the climate we’ll see in the next 100 years.”
—Jane Lubchenco, a Harvard-trained marine ecologist and new chief of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
The link from Lubchenco’s name will take you to an Asheville Citizen-Times story about climate change.
As I wrote in an earlier post: “Any decision we make these days which does not take global climate change into account is worse than wrong, it embodies an immoral disregard for our children and threatens the very survival of our grandchildren.”
