In 2001 I made And Now your Local Forecast, a unique book with circuit board covers and a message that expressed hope in the ability of science to inform us and predict our earth's future. Lark Books featured it in 500 Handmade Books. Eleven years later, I am revisiting the topic with climate change in mind. In this update I have crafted images of our changing environment, threats and options. This time computer circuit covers enclose a different message, "the readiness is all".
