Great American Adaptation Road Trip in 7 Minutes

Created: 12/18/2013 -

Abstract

Kirsten Howard and Allie Goldstein, recent graduates of the School of Natural Resources and Environment at the University of Michigan, spent three months traveling around the United States collecting 'stories of climate resilience'--examples of people and places adapting to the impacts of climate change. They visited 31 states and conducted 158 interviews with natural resource managers, climate scientists, farmers, city planners, business owners, artists, and more. This is the 7-minute version of their summer. Check out the full story at www.adaptationstories.com.
