An article in the LA Times has an undramatic report about a change in Californian perspectives on Climate Change. Its just the beginning of a statewide plan to adapt to Climate Change. The very existence of the plan is an acknowledgement that – even though we really don’t know what is happening now or will happen in the future – our best estimate is that Climate will change.
To use the language of thermodynamics, this not a first order change of phase – because nothing has actually changed. But as I gaze at the story I feel it is more of a second order phase change – the moment at which things begin to change. Time will tell.
