Ask a Climate Expert: What Communities Want to Know about Climate Impacts
The Sustainable Cities Network is teaming up with the American Meteorological Society (AMS) to host a meeting for cities and professionals to address your local questions about climate change.
Small group discussion starter questions to include:
- How can we cool our urban environments?
- How can we communicate the dangers of extreme heat? Or the potential impacts of climate change in Arizona since sea level rise and hurricanes are not our climate catastrophes?
- What are strategies to adapt to and mitigate the impacts of hotter and drier weather conditions in Arizona?
- What are the ramifications of weather modification?
- What effects do mitigation efforts in other states have on Arizona’s and Phoenix’s weather patterns?
- How is Arizona affected by extreme weather in the rest of the western states?
- How can we develop a useful community Climate Action Plan?
- How can we evaluate our state and local resiliency to weather extremes?
