“The (proposed Trump budget) cuts are a gut-punch to the community.” Beth Gibbons

Every community has to cope with climate change as a reality regardless of politicians’ political ideologies. Federal funds support many of these efforts, directly or indirectly – such as through the data supplied by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for severe weather monitoring – yet the Trump administration has proposed draconian budget cuts expecting the states to pick up the slack. So, how will communities cope with not having this support and still protect their communities?

Two of the organizations helping communities do this are the Institute for Sustainable Communities and the American Society of Adaptation Professionals (ASAP). Listen to Green Connections Radio host Joan Michelson’s enlightening conversation with one of the top leaders helping communities with this challenge: Beth Gibbons, Senior Officer at the ISC and Managing Director of the ASAP discuss the following:

  • What NOAA does for us every day - A to Z
  • How communities are coping with climate change today
  • The potential impact of the proposed Trump budget cuts, job loss, economic hit
  • The climate change realities facing communities, regardless of political ideology
  • The role and options for insurance companies in climate change
  • Top three things community leaders can do today

Note: The audio quality on this one is not as good as GCR usually is.
