Atmospheric G2 | Climate Change and Extreme Weather: The New Normal and Some Surprising Nuance

Wednesday, 8 March

4:00 pm - 4:30 pm (CST) / 08/mar/2023 10:00 pm - 08/mar/2023 10:30 pm
The science is clear: our warming world is resulting in a higher frequency of historic heat events, e.g., the Pacific Northwest in the summer of 2021 and the UK in the summer of 2022, and more intense rainfall rates. This clarity fades a bit when discussing other extreme weather events, like hurricanes and tornadoes. Here, we will take a detailed look at historical weather trends, expected changes in energy usage, and what exactly "normal" means these days.
