The summer of 2022 — which brought record-breaking heat waves, heat-related deaths around the globe, pervasive drought, devastating wildfires, and severe rains — ranks among the hottest in recorded history. Scientists agree that without active intervention, the world faces a worsening crisis of more killer heat, humidity, and climate consequences. On Monday, February 27, 2023, Columbia Climate School invites you to attend a virtual Earth Series. Please join Columbia Climate School Founding Dean Alex Halliday as he hosts three of the University's renowned climate and environmental experts for ‘Blazing Temperatures, Broken Records: Responding to the Global Heat Crisis.’ Cecilia Sorensen M.D, Associate Professor of Environmental Health Sciences at the Columbia University Medical Center; Diana Hernandez, Associate Professor of Sociomedical Sciences at the Columbia Mailman School of Public Health; and Radley Horton, Lamont Research Professor at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory will join Dr. Halliday to share their latest research, present their take on powerful ways to avert climate catastrophe and answer your questions. Join us for this leading-edge conversation.
