New Blog Series by RFF’s Peter Nelson Launches with Adaptation

Sep 25, 2017

WASHINGTON—Today marks the beginning of a series of occasional blog posts on a host of subjects by Peter Nelson, Director of Communications at Resources for the Future (RFF). Peter’s experience in energy and environmental issues goes back to early work on a startup known then—and now—as Greenwire, and also for The Hotline. His posts will take unique and common-sense views of important issues, many addressed by RFF research.

The first installment is How Should We Adapt to a Changing Climate? In it, he specifically reacts to a memorable and recent quote by Craig Fugate, former director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA): "It ain't about climate change anymore, it's about climate adaptation."

Resources for the Future does not take institutional positions. Please attribute any findings to the authors or the research itself. For example, use "According to research from RFF …" rather than "According to RFF …".
