Opening Party: Adapt! Climate Change Hits Home

We have known about the perils of climate change for more than two decades. But global efforts to slow it down by reducing greenhouse-gas emissions have largely failed. Although we must do everything in our power to stop climate change, some of its impacts are now inevitable. Climate change adaptation — preparing for heat waves, drought, and sea level rise — is now essential.

In this exhibition, SPUR surveys the likely impacts of climate change to the San Francisco Bay Area. We also recommend more than 30 adaptation strategies for minimizing our region’s vulnerabilities to the potentially catastrophic effects of uncontrolled global warming.

The exhibition is curated by SPUR Sustainable Development Policy Director Laura Tam, based on the work of SPUR’s blue-ribbon task force on climate adaptation, and designed by Leon Yu.
