Join UCS experts for a webinar on the relationship between Hurricane Sandy and climate change, the storm’s economic and health impacts, and how we can prepare ourselves and our infrastructures to be more resilient.
Sizing up Sandy
After the largest Atlantic hurricane on record affected U.S. states from southern Florida to northern Maine and as far west as Wisconsin, analysts from the Union of Concerned Scientists are looking at the implications of the storm in our Hurricane Sandy: Confronting the Realities of Climate Change blog series.
In this series, our analysts are bringing their varied expertise to bear on a fascinating range of questions—from the relationship between the storm and climate change, to the economic costs and health impacts, to how we can prepare ourselves and our infrastructure to be more resilient. Now we invite you to hear more from these and other UCS experts and to ask your own questions.
Rachel Cleetus, senior climate economist – health and economic impacts
Laura Wisland, senior energy analyst – resilient energy systems
Calen May-Tobin, climate policy analyst/advocate – mapping and good information
Marchant “Lucky” Wentworth, Washington representative – political landscape and opportunities
Please register for the webinar today. You may submit questions on the registration page for the UCS experts to address during the webinar. There will also be opportunities to ask questions during the webinar itself. We look forward to your participation.
