Good Morning, America! The Explosive U.S. Awakening to the Need for Adaptation

May 2009

This paper provides an historical overview of the public, political, and scientific concern with adaptation in the United States. It presents the treatment of adaptation to climate change in a variety of contexts, ranging from the news media to the drafting of bills in Congress, to state and local government activities with considerable engagement of NGOs, scientists and consultants. It finds that adaptation has finally, and explosively, emerged on the political agenda as a legitimate and needed subject for debate.
