David:

fantastic stories from the heart !! Thanks for sharing.

Comment re: urgent need for climate action:  we need drastic, quantum leap measures. It is even more urgent than you indicate.

-- scientists revised the 2 C target last year to 1.5 C.

-- slowing of Atlantic Ocean currents to lowest in 1600 years

-- dengue fever impacts much less at 1.5 vs 2 C; other insect virus spreading in the US

-- carbon budget studies show we need to get to NEGATIVE Carbon emission very soon.

I can send references on this, and other climate impact & adaptation info (e.g., my slides from my presentations), if you like. 

Salud,

Tom Phillips
