Wading Knee Deep

The Knee Deep Times is a lively new newspaper—free and online—about people facing off against sea level rise and other menaces of climate change. The excellent Ariel R. Okamoto, also of Estuary News, edits. In the fall I joined Ariel in reporting on sessions of the 2021 Climate Adaptation Forum, a grand caucus of experts in government and out. My vignettes covered forest repair in the mountains draining to Lake Oroville; a Southern California water district reducing its draw from the Delta; an LA community devising ways to keep cool in heat waves; and Bay Area cities and counties striving to plan for rising tides without tripping over their jurisdictional boundary signs.
