The University of Michigan — through its School of Natural Resources and Environment (SNRE) — has published the proceedings from the school's May 2007 National Summit on Coping with Climate Change. The event — the first of its kind in the U.S. — focused on helping the U.S. prepare for the impact of climate change. The book captures the ideas of top environmental leaders regarding national adoption strategies to climate change. The 256-page proceedings contains keynote speeches, transcripts of breakout sessions and panel discussions.
