RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A recent government report says that natural disasters “have already become more frequent, intense, widespread or of long duration" ... and it’s only going to get worse.
NBC12 meteorologist Andrew Frieden hosted a Digital Dialogue on this topic Tuesday to discuss climate change’s impact on the commonwealth and what the future holds as the report says the southeast can expect hotter and wetter weather.
Joining Andrew was Dr. Jeremy Hoffman, the Science Museum of Virginia’s Climate & Earth science specialist. He produces climate science educational content for the musuem.
“Climate change is transforming where and how we live and presents growing challenges to human health and quality of life, the economy, and the natural systems that support us,” the report says.
