Polar vortex January 7 (earth.nullschool.net)
I’m joining Stephanie Abrams (The Weather Channel), Marshall Shepherd (American Meteorological Society), Bernadette Woods (Climate Central) and James Overland (NOAA) in a live discussion on the polar vortex, extreme weather and climate change, moderated by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP).
It starts at 2 p.m. (Friday, January 10) and you can watch it live here:
Or, you can join the Hangout here: We the Geeks: “Polar Vortex” and Extreme Weather
If you miss the live viewing, the program will also be archived and viewable above.
