With all of the climate reports coming out in such a short amount of time, Danielle and I decided to sit down and discuss the implications of their findings. More specifically, we chose to focus on the Fourth National Climate Assessment, which was mandated by Congress and a collaboration between at least a dozen agencies. It also cited research done by a few Cornell professors, two of whom, Toby Ault and Mike Hoffman, have been on the pod before! When you see the information and statistics presented in these reports, it is always important to consider what it means for you, your family, and your community.
