EESI – Living with Climate Change: Extreme Heat Policies to Anticipate Threats and Build Preparedness

A live webcast will be streamed at 12:00 PM EDT at www.eesi.org/livecast.

The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) invites you to a briefing on policies and practices to address extreme heat. Across the country, the number of days per year with temperatures over 100 degrees Fahrenheit is increasing, and heat causes more deaths than any other type of weather event. In April 2022, the Biden-Harris Administration announced the first Department of Labor program to protect workers from the impacts of extreme heat. Additional steps are needed to reduce the risk of dangerously hot conditions and increase community resilience to heat.

Panelists will discuss ways that built and natural infrastructure can reduce temperatures, steps to protect outdoor and warehouse workers, and how communities and cities are designing and implementing heat action plans.

Speakers

Co-moderated by Daniel Bresette and Kurt Shickman.
