Raging wildfires, extreme heat, water shortages, rising seas — all problems that are expected to worsen as the effects of climate change take hold. But rather than just wait for disaster to strike, the city of San Diego has started taking action.
Last week, a group of climate scientists, insurance experts, real estate developers and city planners met to discuss how to better prepare for the challenges their city may face. The two-day workshop was organized by Ceres, a non-profit group that focuses on getting businesses and investors to think about climate change.
