Climate change is unequivocal and upon us know. The most recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change outlines with the utmost certainty that the science is clear and humans are the cause. Climate projections for central North America indicate an intensification of warming that will result in catastrophic consequences and destabilization if mitigation is not implemented soon. The lower emissions case remains our best scenario, and must be accompanied by adaptation measures. All sectors must think in terms of innovation and look for opportunities of transformational change. Furthermore, the importance of normalization of the conversation around climate change cannot be overstated.
