Introduction

A PERC Lone Mountain Forum titled “Human Adaptation to Climate Change,” will be held July 31–August 2, 2011, at the PERC office in Bozeman, Montana.
                    
The focus of the Forum will be an investigation of how we will live with a changing climate. How will we adapt to climate change, mitigate its harmful effects, and exploit its beneficial effects? Should we expect mass migrations from tropical to subtropical areas as warming continues? How does the ability to adapt to climate change vary with latitude and wealth? Where should we expect future humanitarian crises to arise? Can we formulate policies that improve outcomes associated with a warmer world?
