Dr. Ed Kearns, Chief Data Officer for the up-start non-profit, First Street Foundation, joins the Triple Point to talk about how their mission and technology help homeowners, the real estate and insurance sectors, and government agencies better account for future climate risk.
How will the 2023 Atlantic Hurricane season unfold? We can use data and extrapolations of El Nino information to try and predict it. But not all extrapolations have helped in the past and in the end, it takes just one Hurricane Katrina to devastate a community.
