My Climate Story is a public research project that makes global climate change personal, sponsored by the Penn Program in Environmental Humanities. This interactive workshop intends to create climate conversations and guide participants to recognize how local climate issues are impacting their lives in the here and now–and shaping their life stories.

Climate change is threatening the ability to offer insurance against some climate-related disasters. This webinar will highlight challenges in the California homeowners market related to wildfires, and in the southeast U.S. related to hurricanes and floods. Panelists will discuss the many public insurance programs in operation, existing cross-subsidies in disaster insurance pricing, and the difficult choices that will face regulators, program managers, and Congress in the coming years.

Insurance can be central to securing a mortgage and protecting homeowners. Yet, as climate risks grow, insurance premiums are going to necessarily need to rise to reflect the risk. These projected future increases in risk are often hidden from the market—which is limited to one-year contracts—while long-lived decisions are being made, such as the issuance of 30-year mortgages or the siting of development.

There’s Something About Water!

Have you noticed? Water is in the news a lot these days. Whether it is flooding, drought, water quality issues or the state of our nation’s infrastructure, water is one of our most precious resources, yet one we often take for granted. Our water challenges require governments, industry, and individuals working together.
