Climate Savvy, Adaptation Threesome and the National Adaptation Forum! A Podcast with Lara Hansen and Jennie Hoffman

In this very special Halloween Episode, I talk with adaptation planning legends Lara Hansen and Jennie Hoffman. Lara is the Executive Director of Ecoadapt and Jennie is Founder and Principal at Adaptation Insight.  This was the first ‘threeway’ conversation on America Adapts, where we discussed the 5 year anniversary of Jenny and Lara’s groundbreaking book, Climate Savvy.  We learn the origins of the book, and how writing it went hand in hand with the establishment of their nationally recognized group, EcoAdapt.  Their book was one of the first to comprehensively lay out how one adapts to climate change, specifically in the natural resource world.  After digging into the book, we debate,  is the field of adaptation elitist? Is focusing on adaptation taking attention away from mitigating against carbon emissions (we all said no!)?  We also learn if some communities actually mitigate more effectively after they embrace adaptation.  Other topics covered:  the positives and negatives of the failed Cap and Trade bill; is adaptation certification necessary; is “Climate Savvy” still relevant? We also talk about the upcoming National Adaptation Forum next year in Minnesota and what new plenary sessions will be part of the agenda.  And finally we hear Lara and Jennie make an amazing analogy between adaptation and surfing - yes, it makes sense when they explain it, so listen in!
