In episode 176 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons hosts Dr. Kelly Hereid, the Director Of Catastrophe Research and Development at Liberty Mutual Insurance. Kelly takes us through the tool of catastrophe modeling and explains why it could be useful for adaptation planners. We also learn how the insurance industry tries to make the uncertain nature of hurricanes and climate change more predictable: “Climate translators” play a critical role in this process.  They also discuss the wild, wild west nature of the climate data and modeling industry and how to avoid using bad information in your adaptation planning. Doug and Kelly also discuss the unique and controversial role Citizens Property Insurance in Florida plays in coastal planning. Topics covered: What is a ‘climate translator’? How the insurance industry makes climate uncertainty more predictable. What is catastrophe modeling and why it should be used in adaptation planning. Making sense of climate predictions set decades in the future. Translating climate impacts into metrics to make on the ground policy decisions. Dissecting hurricanes and climate impacts into sub perils. The Wild, Wild West nature of the climate modeling and data industry. How does Citizens Property Insurance encourage Floridians to make bad housing decisions. Check out the America Adapts Media Kit here! Subscribe to the America Adapts newsletter here.

In episode 172, Judge Alice Hill from the Council on Foreign Relations returns to the podcast! Alice discusses the recent floods in Pakistan and how the aftermath could be a national security threat. We also discuss Puerto Rico and Hurricane Irma and the challenges of getting on the ground resilience funding on the island. Alice and I discuss how bureaucracies can have difficulty supporting adaptation planning and funding and why a National Adaptation Plan would help with adaptation coordination. Alice also shares the lack of basic climate understanding among corporate leaders and how that inhibits making resilience a priority in the private sector. We also dig into the recommendations of the recently released GAO report, Climate Change: Enhancing Federal Resilience. Always great to catch up with Alice Hill! Topics covered: The flooding in Pakistan and the National Security Implications of the aftermath. Hurricane Fiona and Puerto Rico. The challenges for FEMA to distribute funding. Bureaucratic hurdles to effective climate adaptation. Why a National Adaptation Plan is absolutely needed. The Government Accountability Office report on Climate Resilience The controversy at the World Bank. The systematic lack of climate change knowledge in corporate leadership.

In episode 170, Lisa Craig of The Craig Group joins the podcast to discuss how her company supports local governments, community groups, cultural organizations, and state, national and tribal partners in adapting to climate change.  We also discuss the challenges of adapting cultural resources in a changing climate. Doug and Lisa discuss the implications of suing a local government to adapt to climate change.  Lisa shares stories of working with communities and describes in detail how they get very different stakeholders to collaborate on adaptation planning. In a segment, ‘adapt or abandon’, Lisa gives her professional opinion on what historic resources should be preserved and which ones we might have to abandon. It’s a provocative conversation but ultimately one many of us will have to have. Lisa also shares her unique professional journey into the adaptation sector. We also get a sneak peak of some work America Adapts will be doing with Lisa’s team in Trinidad and Tobago in 2023.   Topics covered: Hazard mitigation and its role in historic preservation. Historic preservation planning drives local adaptation planning. The art of getting diverse stakeholders to collaborate on adaptation planning. Lisa’s history of adaptation planning throughout the United States. What is Keeping History Above Water? Can you sue someone or a government entity to adapt because a historic resource is at risk from climate change? We do a new segment, “adapt or abandon” and Lisa gives her professional advice on some historic sites and if we should save them or abandon them.

In episode 165 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons hosts Dr. Katharine Mach. Katharine is a Professor at the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science and is a lead author for the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report. Katharine explains the process of drafting the report; how the media succeeds and fails at communicating the urgency of the report; Doug and Katharine also discuss a need to rethink the role and purpose of the IPCC report to help elevate the urgency of the message it’s sending. Katharine also explains a paper on “the concept of risk” she co-authored for the IPCC. In addition, we hear how the University of Miami is bringing adaptation and resilience into its curriculum. Topics covered: IPCC is a grand partnership between the governments of the world. How did the media do in reporting on the IPCC report? The IPCC has zero regulatory authority over sovereign nations. What does it mean to be a lead author for the IPCC. Many developing countries don’t have the climate data and experts that developed countries have. How can the IPCC be relevant to adaptation planners in the U.S. Who is the audience for the IPCC report and how do you communicate to different audiences. How can American policymakers make use of the IPCC report. Adaptation education at the University of Miami. Transcripts of this episode here.

In the latest episode of America Adapts, we are talking with citizen activists impacted by repeated flooding and what actions they are taking in response.  The podcast is joined by representatives from the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Anthropocene Alliance. We also talk to four citizen activists who have experienced flooding first hand and the steps they are taking to make their communities more resilient to future extreme events.  We share stories of citizen adapters and the advice they give others that are dealing with extreme events in their communities. We also hear some national level policy recommendations on how to help communities adapt to flooding conditions that will worsen as the climate warms. Get on the ground with flood survivors! Topics covered: Learn what it’s like to live with repeated flooding. How the Anthropocene Alliance helps citizens take action in response to flooding (and how you can benefit too). What role FEMA plays in flood response. What federal policy reforms are needed for NFIP (National Flood Insurance Program) The challenges of moving from home sites that are repeatedly flooded. How flood policies can exacerbate environmental justice problems.
