Welcome to Nodelcorp Climate Risk and Resilience
... Blogging about trends in the world of climate change

I was thinking about slippery words and discussing climate. Slippery words can steer us in many directions that affect the way we discuss climate.
Why Nodelcorp Climate Risk and Resilience?
Over the years, we have considered sharing our views about climate change in a blog – Nodelcorp Climate Risk and Resilience. While this may seem like a simple decision, we took a long time to review the pros and cons. We believe that our work is important. The climate is changing and is threatening the very foundation of the systems we rely on. We work with our clients to identify these threats and reduce their risk. We have done assessments across Canada and internationally, written articles and reports, and given a ton of presentations. Along the way, have helped many achieve more resilience.
We believe we have much to share. So, why the reticence about starting the blog? Well, not everyone agrees that the climate is changing. In fact, we have met with many folks along the way who just don’t buy it. They see any acceptance of climate change as a threat to their way of life, and they are adamant in their opposition. They crop up everywhere, in business meetings, online, at seminars, and even among the very staff that have hired us to help. Also, the fear is real. The reaction is predictable. But, we need to move beyond fear to action.
As climate professionals, we face this discussion almost every day. Indeed, we can find it frustrating, as the arguments only cloud the issues and create divisions. While we find it challenging to address these fears head on, doing so is becoming core business. We cannot achieve resilience if we go on arguing about the existence of the very real threat we face.
So, with this in mind, we finally bit the bullet on this initiative and started publication of Nodelcorp Climate Risk and Resilience early in 2019. We accept that not everyone agrees with what we have to say. While we are we are always open to discussion, we are not fans of argument. So, we ask that comments remain civil and open to different perspectives on these issues.
Hope you enjoy the blog!
