JUNE 18 BRIEFING TO DISCUSS HOW BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF CHANGING WEATHER CAN SAVE LIVES, MONEY, PROPERTY
Everybody talks about the weather, but no one seems to do anything about it. Even those whose careers revolve around the weather can't change it.
But results of an upcoming conference to better understand the impacts of weather and climate change in the Southeastern United States could save lives, money and property.
Climate experts who will lead next week's Southeastern Climate Change Workshop will be available Wednesday, June 18 at 2 p.m. EDT via teleconference, to preview the workshop for news media. They will discuss how conference results could be used to help protect and improve the environment and public health; better manage urban development; and mitigate the impact of natural disasters in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
Media interested in participating in the teleconference or in attending the June 25-27 workshop at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn., should call Kelly McFalls of the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center Public Affairs Office at 205/544-3317.
