Trip report - "Wild Weather" Climate One panel talk at SF's Commonwealth Club Dec 13
Tuesday afternoon I drove down to the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco for an evening Climate One event titled "Wild Weather", a panel discussion with a host, 3(?) IPCC authors and an extreme-weather crop insurance startup CEO. I've blogged it here at my climate blog (the Climate One blogger did a more complete post), and the take-home local message - besides the obvious "yes climate is changing, extreme weather events are increasing, and things can be done to adapt, in the short run at least" is that unless others from up here want to go too, & discuss & brainstorm along the way, San Francisco is too far to go for an event like this.
