The Climate Pod

May 28, 2021

Recently, NOAA released their new U.S. Climate Normals map, which is updated every ten years. It's yet another reminder that we are living in an increasingly warm world. So how will we adapt? Three expert guests join us for a roundtable discussion on how we deal with the health, economic, justice, and climate repercussions of a hotter country and planet. 
Kathy Baughman McLeod is the Senior Vice President and Director of the Adrienne Arsht-Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Center at the Atlantic Council and leads the Extreme Heat Resilience Alliance (EHRA), a global group that has proposed naming and ranking heat waves.

Dr. Laurence S. Kalkstein is the President of Applied Climatologists, Inc., a climate scientist, and member of EHRA. He also serves as principal investigator and co-founder of the Los Angeles Urban Cooling Collaborative (LAUCC)

Dr. Aaron Bernstein is the Interim Director of The Center for Climate, Health, and the Global Environment at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (Harvard Chan C-CHANGE) — also a member of EHRA, pediatrician at Boston Children’s Hospital, and an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School.
