The Upside of Down
by Joel Bernard
We are facing a critical juncture in our societal order.
Weather conditions are forcing communities into life altering scenarios. Regions of the country will no longer be capable of sustaining human activity. Mankind is at a tipping point, and we will have to decide whether to continue ignoring nature’s warnings or live with the consequences. The Upside of Down explores the changes to social order caused by climate disruption and the need to plan for the necessity of population relocation and our ability to provide help to displaced communities.
