Presented by David Pogue

Maybe you’re liberal, maybe you’re conservative. Maybe you think the climate crisis is man-made, maybe you don’t. Maybe you think the whole thing is a Chinese hoax.
It doesn’t matter. The time for bickering is long gone. The world is getting hotter, natural systems are going haywire, and you should begin to prepare.
Most people assume that governments, corporations, and institutions are the only entities capable of developing protection against climate chaos. But for his new book “How to Prepare for Climate Change,” New York Times bestselling author David Pogue spent a year researching the answers to a new question: How can an individual prepare for the coming era of chaos?
Where to live. How to build. Where to invest. What to eat. What to grow. What to study. How to talk to your kids. How to prepare your business. And, as extreme-weather events become more commonplace in every state in America, how to prepare for flooding, wildfire, drought, hurricane, heat waves, and social breakdown.
This presentation is lively, current, eye-opening, filled with surprising revelations—and, ultimately, uplifting. After having our heads pounded day after day by depressing headlines, Pogue presents a breath of fresh air: A practical path forward that’s entirely within your own control.
