In the words of Winston Churchill, “The era of procrastination, of half-measures, of soothing and baffling expedients, of delays is coming to its close. In its place we are entering a period of consequences…” From this moment forward our nation, indeed all nations, will be engaged in a full court press to halt further disruptions to Earth’s climate system as rapidly as possible. We need messengers. With its reach into every one of our nation’s 3,031 counties, Extension is poised to play an outsize role in moving us to the “all hands on deck” posture that we must achieve. To fill this role for their clients, extension professionals need a firm grasp of the challenge; the scale of risk, the scale of response, and the context into which all of this fits. This will be our topic. I’ll discuss how I approach this story, and get all of you thinking about the narratives you will develop to engage your communities.
