On May 24th, I had the opportunity to speak on behalf of the Santa Clara Valley Water District at the Sustainable Silicon Valley's annual WEST: Water, Energy, Smart Technology Summit. More info about my panel regarding regional resilience to climate change is here, and my presentation is below:
Supposedly, we followed a variant on the Pecha Kucha, 20 slides/7minutes presentation. Some speakers completely ignored the rules; I didn't think quite that far out of the box.
My Powerpoint had a glitch - it was advancing automatically while I was talking. Fortunately, they removed that from the video. Unfortunately, fixing that appears to have lost two slides in the process. At about 5:10 I start referring to a compromise between letting the bay advance due to sea level rise and protecting critical areas at a red line, and that missing slide is here:
My thanks to Water District staff for the crucial assistance in preparing the slides. Responsibility for any opinions I expressed rests with me.
