Are the hard decisions being made in time to ensure that the U.S. is prepared for the worst of these climate realities? Our military, emergency response planners, businesses, and communities are assessing risks and vulnerabilities and mobilizing to adapt to and prepare for the impacts. Will current measures be enough to guarantee our national security, protect and sustain our economy? And if not, what else must be done to build a society with stronger and more resilient communities for the future?
