Adapting to Climate Change

(Rochester, NY) – From New York City to America’s heartland to around the world, Adapting to Climate Change, a new one-hour Engineers of the New Millennium and National Science Foundation special co-hosted by Rick Karr, examines plans that engineers, scientists, government officials, business leaders, NGOs, and community groups are making to deal with future catastrophic events and shifting weather patterns. Adapting to Climate Change airs Sunday, January 12 at 9 p.m. on AM 1370/FM-HD 91.5-2.

Businesses are beginning to talk about climate change in different terms. Instead of debating whether humans are causing it, there's a lot more talk about what climate change might mean to the business climate. Lester Graham reports there are questions about what might happen to affect business as global temperatures and weather patterns change.
