Hello SN&R reader!

Most of us are familiar with the dangers we face due to a warming planet. What's less understood is what the specific impacts of climate change are going to be on any particular part of the world ... and when they'll be felt. In Cosmo Garvin's Earth Day-inspired cover story "Adaptation," he learns that, in the Sacramento area, climate change will mean warmer summers, wetter winters, worsened smog, and more heat waves. Question: are we going to be ready to adapt?! Elsewhere in this SN&R, find all the news, opinion, music, arts and food content you've come to know will be there each week.

Happy Earth Day!
