Roger Pielke, Jr
EIIP Moderator: Amy Sebring
The session primarily focused on (1) Hurricane Impacts, (2) Hurricane Forecasts, and (3) Hurricane Policies. Pielke expanded on each of the three areas with statistics, graphs, and URLs to demonstrate research findings about reasons for increased hurricane losses, both human and financial, and predictions for the future.
