Climate change portends dramatic adjustments to our natural world and the way we live in it. In California, many of the challenges of adapting to a changing climate are institutional, requiring better information, determined policymaking, and more adaptive institutions, but California's current political culture and system of public administration are not well suited to a warmer and more variable climate. Even as it creates new challenges, however, climate change will present opportunities for leadership by a state that has established itself as a global leader in knowledge-intensive innovation.
