Light in the River Reports

Light in the River’s reports, and the dialogue we hope they engender, will offer and explore solutions that jointly counter global warming; preserve healthy waters, fish, farms and communities; and advance initiatives to achieve both goals.

The reports will be factual and forward-looking. They start from today’s realities but focus on tomorrow’s imperatives. Each report will express its authors’ informed views, rather than hew to any project sponsor’s party line. Given the tough challenge posed by global warming, each paper will tackle tough questions but do so with determination to find and implement solutions.
