Adaptation and preparedness are critical in mitigating the consequences of extreme weather events driven by climate change.

More on: Adaptation and preparedness

The podcast episodes highlight the importance of adaptation and preparedness in dealing with the increasing frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, such as wildfires and heat waves, that are linked to climate change.

The episodes emphasize the need for better models and forecasting to understand how these events are changing, as well as the development of practical strategies and communication methods to help communities prepare for and respond to these hazards effectively.

For example, the episode 'TBD | Why Extreme Weather Keeps Surprising You' discusses how climate scientists are working to connect the abstract concept of climate change to the specific impacts of individual extreme weather events, while the episode 'A Week Of Deadly Wildfire Smoke' examines the need for improved air quality monitoring and communication to protect public health during periods of intense wildfire smoke.
