Like everything in life, horrible events can provide opportunities and climate change (aka global warming) is no different.
For those within an hour to ride from Amherst, Mass. try to get to the CLIMATE CHANGE TRANSPORT THINK TANK on May 29-30. (all details posted on www.h3bmedia.com under events).
Lots of public and private sector funding is flowing to resolving climate change, and the transport piece is huge. If you're a techie, environmental consultant or even in PR/marketing like me, there could be big opportunities down the line in this field.
