Climate Data is Power – to the People

Mar 14, 2023

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

As climate scientists – and moms – we know that future generations depend on us making good decisions today about where and how to develop our human society and protect our planet. When we harness the power of big climate data, we can all make better decisions for our cities, our countries and our homes. As our planet warms, the water from the oceans comes on-shore more often in ways we are just beginning to fathom, often to devastating effect.
Dr. Russell uses oceangoing robots to predict our climate future on a planetary scale. Dr. Tellman uses detailed maps of floods in near-real-time to help people in need right now. Both are certain that, with more, higher quality and better understood data, we can act wisely to make big changes, one family, one business, one policy at a time.
