We had 347 people register, 229 attended throughout - with an average attendance of about 200 people at any given time during the webinar. For reference we usually only have about 100 people register for our webinars and about 60-90 people attend, so this was an extraordinary turnout!






Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2017, the United States experienced a record-tying 16 climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 362 lives, and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted, costing more than $306 billion. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
