The purposes of the IAEM-USA Climate, Water & Weather Caucus are:
An ad hoc committee was officially approved on Apr. 15, 2014, and effective January 2015, this committee became the IAEM-USA Climate, Water & Weather Caucus. Conference calls will be held bi-monthly, with an in-person gathering at the IAEM-USA Annual Conference. The group will consist of two subcommittees: one dedicated to climate change issues, and the other dealing with weather-related concerns. Webinars with climate and weather experts will be held periodically and will be open to all IAEM members.
Climate experts, health professionals, meteorologists, community planners and veteran reporters will discuss rising temperature trends and how to cover potentially deadly heat while COVID-19 protocols are in place. One-hour workshop includes live Q&A. Panelists will include: Iris Hermosillo, meteorologist, ABC15, Phoenix; Zeke Hausfather, climate scientist, Berkeley Earth, and contributor to Carbon Brief; Kristie Ebi, professor, Environmental and Occupational Health, Global Health, University of Washington; Julia Kumari Drapkin, CEO, ISeeChange; Maanvi Singh, West Coast political reporter, The Guardian; and Molly Peterson, reporter, KQED, Los Angeles.
