As director of the California Governor’s Office of Planning and Research and senior climate advisor to Gov. Gavin Newsom, Kate Gordon spends a great deal of time thinking about how states can build climate resiliency into their growth plans. We talked with Gordon about mitigation, adaptation, and resilience in one of the country’s largest, most diverse, and most proactive states. Gordon, a co-author of the Fourth National Climate Assessment’s chapter on adaptation, detailed ways California is boosting its economic growth while becoming better able to weather the wildfires, sea level rise, and other climate impacts already affecting the state.
