CdV's Field Notes, 3/13/19: Connecting for Climate

Stefanie Krantz, Climate Adaptation Planner for the Nez Perce Tribe, will never try to convince you that climate change is real. Instead, she’ll tell you what the Tribal membership is already seeing in the landscape they’ve known intimately for thousands of years: salmon eggs scoured out of creeks by floods; ancient camas-collecting meadows gone dry; wildfire smoke settling in Lapwai earlier and earlier each year. Her job is not to explain the science of climate change. Her job is to assess the Tribe’s vulnerability to it and then draw up a roadmap for adaptation. “I’ll talk to anyone about climate change,” she says. The trick is to start the conversation five steps beyond the tired soundbit
