The Fifth National Climate Assessment summarizes the best available information on the risks, impacts and responses to climate change in the U.S. Our expert guest, Geoff Dabelko, is one of the 500 distinguished authors of the massive Assessment. He is a Professor at Ohio University’s Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Service, and he’s an international thought leader on environmental matters. In this episode, Geoff shares an overview of the report, touching upon both conclusions and recommendations. He mentions several trends, like the convergence of climate issues with concerns related to aging. He describes the $6 billion in new federal investments intended to make communities more resilient, partly by strengthening the electric grid. And we discuss the NCA5’s implications for the job market.
