Description: What’s the best way to get more people to pay attention to the risks posed by climate change?  Democratize the data for free and personalize the story behind it.  That’s what non-profit First Street Foundation is doing with its Risk Factor platform providing information on future risks to flood, fire, heat, wind, and soon air quality.  Dr. Ed Kearns, Chief Data Officer for the up-start non-profit joins the Triple Point to talk about how the mission and technology at First Street help homeowners, the real estate and insurance sectors, and government agencies better account for future climate risk using their Risk Factor platform.  LISTEN HERE
