Deescalate Violence caused by Climate Change

  • mitigation — we must mitigate the causes of climate change like drastically cutting production of CO2 & other greenhouse gases
  • adaptation — Must prepare to live with the affects of climate change which is both:
  • Technical adaptation — Transform our relationship to nature, learn to live with the damage we have wrought by building sea walls and developing sustainable agriculture that can function on industrial scale as weather gyrates wildly
  • Political adaptation — Transform humanity’s relationship to itself like developing ways to deescalate the violence that climate change fuels. Will require economic redistribution and new diplomacy of peace building.
