It's too late to stop climate change. The oceans have already warmed enough to disrupt our weather, food production, and lifestyles for decades. Now it's time to adapt. Governments and corporations can adapt by building seawalls and breeding resilient crops. But what can you do? This lively, deeply researched guidebook includes everything you need to prepare for the hotter, wetter, more unpredictable world: Where to move to avoid the worst natural disasters; how to fortify your home against extreme weather, heat, and flooding; what insurance you need in the more chaotic weather era; how to invest as the world decarbonizes; what to grow in your garden as backup food; how to talk to your kids about the changing environment; how to protect your pets from extreme weather; how to prepare for floods, fires, hurricanes, heat waves, droughts, water shortages, power failures, ticks and mosquitoes, and social disruption; where to find hope in a fast-changing world that leaves people anxious, depressed, and adrift. -- From publisher's description.
