Rational consideration of “adaptation” for California… November 23, 2010

Rational consideration of “adaptation” for California as well as merely quixotic attempts at “prevention.”  A great book on this subject, about the British Isles, is Turned Out Nice by Marek Kohn.  I don’t know of any equivalent volume of that quality about the natural scene in California and the West.

(“Real adaptation is as politically tough as real mitigation, but much more expensive and not as effective in reducing future misery:  Rhetorical adaptation, however, is a political winner. Too bad it means preventable suffering for billions”)
