Radical Adaptation

May 15 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


The Carter Library, Trees Atlanta and A Cappella Books welcome Georgia Tech Professor Brian Stone Jr. for a look at three significant impacts of climate change affecting every major city around the world: extreme heat, flooding, and drought. He will talk about strategies for managing the rising frequency and intensity of climate events, which he calls radical adaptation. Copies of his book will be available for purchase and signing.

It is the first book to establish a framework for climate change adaptation, Stone’s aim is to understand how climate change is altering our lives in the present period – this period of transition between the ancient, stable climate of our ancestors and the unfolding, no longer stable climate of our children – and how our cities might adapt to these changes. Stone’s concern is with the risks posed by a new environmental regime for which our modes of living are ill-adapted, and with how these modes of living must be altered – radically altered – to persist in a climate changed world.
