Sustainable Missoula: Summer Smart helps residents adapt to changing climate

When we launched this effort back in 2015, we recognized that Missoula was under-prepared for dealing with changing summer conditions. No, we cannot install huge fans to blow the smoke out, pass out air-conditioners to all or escape with months-long vacations, but we can better understand the impacts and do more to stay healthy and resilient — to “weather the weather” of a warming Montana and consider ways to help the most vulnerable in our community.
