Storms! Floods! Heat Waves! A Discussion of Climate Change Impacts in New York City
August 13, 2015 @ 9:00 am$10
The Building Energy Exchange does summer blockbusters a little differently than Hollywood. We cover some of the same subject matter- storms, floods, and droughts- but ours is a sober scientific discussion that focuses on resolve and resourcefulness rather than panic.
Join the Building Energy Exchange for a presentation and discussion of the 2015 report from the New York City Panel on Climate Change (NPCC) and how the NYC Office of Recovery & Resiliency (NYC ORR) is integrating the reports findings into their work. The NPCC 2015 report, titled Building the Knowledge Base for Climate Resiliency, reviews and assesses New York City’s resiliency to the expected impacts of climate change, which will likely include increases of annual temperatures, levels of precipitation, and sea level in the next century.
Our discussion will survey the key findings from the NPCC report and how they are currently being integrated into the work of NYC ORR and addressed in policy agendas dealing with climate resiliency and public health.
