TED  Points
Adaptation in a nutshell 
Does anyone here think that global emissions will be reduced in a timely manner?
A silent NO from 35 people.
o Adaptation is local:
o Adaptation and prevention are specific to the place.
o The benefits of adaptation are also local:
- Investments in adaptation are more readily appreciated than investments in reduction of emissions in faraway places.
o Adaptation is to be prepared:
o It is essentially the management of risk.
o Adaptation is to ensure that the next generation survives the future.
o Small island states are the leaders in adaptation.
o Tourism has often been a corporate leader in coastal zones and vulnerable sites.
 That’s TED as in Dr. Edward Manning, Director and Past Chair of the Canadian Club of Rome, and Past Member of the international Club of Rome.
