Climate change and radical adaptation
May 6, 2011 8:54 AM Subscribe
Months ago (possibly a year or two), I heard an NPR interview with an author who made the case that the international community is past the point of being able to mitigate climate change - that the challenge now is radical adaptation (evacuating islands and coastal cities - things like that). This was on Wisconsin Public Radio, but I don't remember whether it was a state or national show. It's possible that he was British or Australian, but it's very possible that I'm mis-remembering that part. Also, I'm almost positive it wasn't James Howard Kunstler (and searching NPR for him doesn't turn up the interview). Any idea who the author could have been, or where I might find the interview? That's almost nothing to go on, but I've seen AskMeFi identify a 30 year-old coffee mug based on a mis-pronounced name and a wish, so I have hope!

I've also written to NPR/WPR audience services, so I'll update the post if they turn up anything.
