Join 90.7 WMFE, 89.5 WMFV and the Florida Center for Investigative Reporting for a conversation on climate change in Florida at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21, at WMFE’s studio, 11510 E. Colonial Drive, Orlando.
WMFE and FCIR partnered last year on a year-long project exploring the ramifications of a warming world in a state that is uniquely impacted and where the policy in recent years has been one of denial. Hear WMFE and FCIR journalists describe their reporting, which took them from coastal communities across the peninsula to the very center of Hurricane Michael. You’ll also hear about a marine geologist and geophysicist’s research into sea level rise. And, what can Floridians expect on the issue from the DeSantis administration?
WMFE Intersection host Matthew Peddie will moderate the discussion.
- Amy Green, environmental reporter for 90.7 WMFE. She is the author of a forthcoming book on the Everglades
- Trevor Aaronson, executive director, Florida Center for Investigative Reporting, a nonprofit news organization supported by foundations and individual contributions
- Tristram Korten, journalist and author based in Miami. His book Into The Storm was published in 2018.
- Dr. Randall W. Parkinson, research associate professor, FIU Institute for Water and Environment
Doors open at 6 p.m. The program starts at 6:30 p.m.
