|Sustainability & Climate Change|
The debate is essentially over. Every day we note the changes occurring in our climate - from increases in air and ocean temperatures, to melting of annual snow packs and age-old ice, to rising sea levels. And with increasing frequency we are witness to subsequent extreme weather events, changes to normal precipitation patterns, dwindling water supplies, and impacts on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. The changes to our climate will profoundly affect every aspect of our environment - and our lives - for the foreseeable future.
How can we adapt? Who will lead the charge? What needs to be done? These questions demand answers, and swiftly. Only through collaborative coalitions of proactive leaders in government, business, and our neighborhoods can effective solutions be achieved. For taking the necessary steps to stop climate change - enacting progressive land use, transportation, and energy policies; making smarter choices about where and how we live; implementing measures to both protect and wisely manage our natural resources; and greening our economy - will require small steps in every community and a "giant leap of mankind."
As the topic triggers economic, social, and emotional concerns, how the dialogue progresses may very well determine how well we adapt. Circlepoint is instrumental in shaping that dialogue - helping policymakers and citizens work together, create change, and steer their course to real, measurable progress.
