Like a scene from 'The Day After Tomorrow' - we need to think differently about climate change adaptation funding. If the impact to infrastructure from climate events is going to be this severe and only intensify, we are now managing the greatest risk event in human history. Resilient infrastructure must literally withstand the effects of climate change just to be useful. Case in point is the issue of electric vehicles and batteries affected by sub-zero temperatures - there are design gaps everywhere and we will continue to pay the cost! Where will the money come from? Working with some interesting people to talk about this soon.

    The reference to 'The Day After Tomorrow' underscores the urgency of rethinking climate change adaptation funding, particularly in the face of severe and intensifying impacts on infrastructure. The statement emphasizes the need for resilient infrastructure that can withstand the effects of climate change to remain functional. The example of electric vehicles and batteries facing challenges in sub-zero temperatures highlights existing design gaps that need addressing. The looming question of funding sources for such critical adaptations becomes central, marking climate change adaptation as one of the most significant risk events in human history. The upcoming discussions with interesting individuals may shed light on innovative solutions and financial strategies to address this pressing issue.
