How will you benefit from climate change?

I admit, hearing about global warming is scary, with reports of hurricanes and droughts and fires it is easy to feel helpless and choose to ignore the message of future climate change.  Perhaps we should shift our focus onto how we are going to adapt and how people will benefit.  Let’s be a community of innovators!  Build houses far enough above sea level so the big storm waves can’t reach them.  Create water storage and management schemes that are efficient (find a grass for golf courses that does not require so much water).  Build fuel efficient engines/electronics/houses with better insulation.  Keep track of the migration of climatic zones where and when crops should be planted, and start selling/planting seeds further north.

Inventive, creative minds and ideas (as well as seeing how other countries adapt to their own climates) will help us to continue living our wonderful, comfortable lives without sacrificing hobbies, while at the same time improving our environment and thus our own health.  Just think about it!
