    Climate change threatens to become the most global and most dangerous of human-caused disasters, although individual communities, nations, and regions are most likely to experience climate change as increasingly continual "natural" disasters -- increased numbers of hurricanes and cyclones, rising sea levels, droughts, floods, loss of key crops, invasions of pests, and increasing outbreaks of various kinds of diseases -- typhoid, cholera, malaria -- once thought to be more-or-less under human control. This panel explores the concept of climate change adaptation as disaster preparedness and will examine climate change impacts to both humans and other species, the status of climate change as a disaster, and potential adaptation responses.
