Author Explains How To Prepare For Climate Change


Reginald Hardwick/Illinois Newsroom

It’s been less than a month since President Joe Biden was inaugurated, but he’s already taken several actions against what he once described as the biggest issue facing the word: climate change. In the short while he’s been in office President Biden has signed 29 executive orders, including three pertaining to the environment, most notably rejoining the United States to the Paris Agreement.

However, many scientists worry that the planet is on a collision course with climate change which will have irreversible, and deadly consequences. Perhaps it’s time to start thinking about adaptation, as much as mitigation.
