Increasing greenhouse gases, amplified by the water cycle, are transforming the climate of the Earth and New England. Our winters are shrinking rapidly, so crops and pests can both survive, and severe weather and flooding is increasing. I will discuss the changes that are happening and address the huge transition we face as a society - how to deal with it and how to make a creative contribution to the future of the Earth and our children.
