We May Need a Bigger Boat: Is Mass. Ready for Climate Change?

May 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us on May 1 at 7 p.m. (via Zoom) for a free discussion on what Massachusetts should be doing to prepare for the predicted impacts of climate change. MetroWest Climate Solutions is pleased to host Dr. Edwin Sumargo, a Climate Scientist on the Massachusetts’ Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) Climate Team. The team includes climate hazards, mitigation, adaptation, and policy experts as well as staff to support local communities. Dr. Sumargo will discuss the latest climate projections and how his team supports state agencies and municipalities to prepare for the inevitable challenges they will be facing.

Dr. Sumargo has over eight years of experience in geospatial and statistical data analyses, with domain expertise in meteorology, climatology, and hydrology. Before coming to the EEA in 2023, Edwin was a researcher at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. He earned his PhD in Climate Science from UC San Diego.
