During the last 500 million years the earth has witnessed five mass extinctions. Today, scientists believe a sixth is on its way. Between now and the year 2050, climate shocks will compel everyone to adapt to shifting weather conditions. Catastrophic movement of seashores and worsening drought conditions will dramatically transform cities and towns – altering the lives of millions whose economic circumstances, even now, hang in the balance. Authors offer a new perspective to protect lives and billions of dollars in property loss from the impact of extreme weather changes. They explore in a clear easy-to-understand style the serious housing needs of the geographically vulnerable communities and the nearly 2 billion additional residents expected to populate the earth within the next generation. This manifesto for economic growth reframes the climate-change discussion around creating employment, housing and investment opportunities in America. Learn about mitigating the risks of stranded assets, innovative financing strategies for public infrastructure, and emerging and available technologies. Every government official, legislator, investor, developer, community leader, architect, urban planner and student should read this book to navigate the rising tides of the unknown in this ever-changing climate towards brighter economic horizons.
