Hot enough for you? Get ready for more sweaty!

As Policy Pub returns for three new sessions in fall 2019, we kick off with an examination into rising temperatures and what Tallahassee residents can expect from future weather forecasts.

James Elsner, chair of the FSU Department of Geography and a nationally cited expert on climate change, storms, and their impact on communities, gets the fall series rolling with “The Hots Are Getting Hotter: More Extreme Heat in Tallahassee.”

Elsner will present evidence that extremely hot days and hot nights are becoming more common in Tallahassee. After his brief talk, the floor will open to all attendees for a lively conversation about the issue – in the air-conditioned comfort of one of the city’s most popular eateries!

Weather is always a topic on everyone’s mind, especially at the height of the hurricane season, and Elsner is the perfect expert for these times. He is the author of more than 150 research articles and books, primarily on climatology, and is frequently featured in articles and broadcasts about climate change and the increasing intensity of storms.

Because these events are very well attended, the public is encouraged to arrive early to get a convenient parking spot and a good table inside.
