Fire, Floods and Storms: Code Red for Humanity - We speak to Thomas Morlock from Risk Frontiers
This week we have a special guest. This is the second time he has been on our podcast and it is a pleasure to have him as a guest again.
We have invited Thomas Mortlock back for an interview to comment on the extreme weather events happening around the globe.
From extreme heat and fires in North America where we lost so much of the biodiversity in the Ocean and on land to the floods across central Europe and central Asia, to the fires burning in Turkey, Greece, Italy with considerable economic damages but unimaginable losses to human and animal lives, we are trying to find out if this is a sign of what’s to come.
Thomas is Senior Risk Scientist at Risk Frontiers where he leads the development of physical climate risk modelling services and Risk Frontiers' coastal, flood and tropical cyclone catastrophe loss models. He has worked for over 12 years in the fields of climate science, catastrophe risk and insurance, resilience, and coastal and flood modelling. Thomas is a Chartered Engineer and an Adjunct Fellow at Macquarie University. He holds a PhD in the field of Coastal Geoscience.
