  • Product Description

    Abstract:
    This sequel reveals which actions the County took, and describes the outcome of each in brief. It also includes two exhibits: a summary of the goals and actions outlined in the adaptation section of the 2007 King County Climate Plan and a list of executive orders intended to reduce the county's contribution to global warming. In addition to addressing certain generic leadership challenges--how to navigate the difficult intersection of politics and science, how to think about uncertainty, how to plan for the long term, how to prove effective on both local and national stage--the case has the advantage of introducing readers to a compelling contemporary public issue, sure to grow in urgency worldwide.
