Climate resilience gets ahead of the effects of climate change Today’s Video of the Day comes from NASA Goddard and features a look at climate resilience, which aims to prepare of the effects of climate change. NASA scientists are working with city officials from New York City and Rio de Janeiro to brace for rising sea levels and urban heat islands. The collaborative team of researchers are using climate models to predict how, where, and when ocean water levels will rise.
Climate resilience is the ability to anticipate, prepare for, and respond to hazardous events, trends, or disturbances related to climate. Improving climate resilience involves assessing how climate change will create new, or alter current, climate-related risks, and taking steps to better cope with these risks.
Climate change adaptation. Climate change adaptation is a response to global warming (also known as “climate change” or “anthropogenic climate change”), that seeks to reduce the vulnerability of social and biological systems to relatively sudden change and thus offset the effects of global warming. As seen above Climate resilience gets ahead of the effects of climate change 3 ways to foster resilience in the face of climate change. As climate change worsens, companies will need the ability to continually recover from the resulting disruption,
