On April 18, 2016, it was estimated that 750 Astrodomes of rain fell in northwest Houston in a 12 hour period. This was the largest concentrated rainfall event in the region’s history. This was the third historic, 500 year flood in less than one year. The negative impacts of climate change are being felt more regularly across our communities. The goal here is to develop a dialogue that will lead to efforts to better understand how to adapt to future severe weather events, whether it is flooding, extreme heat, drought, hurricanes, etc. Practical, cost effective solutions must be discussed and considered to ensure the wellbeing of our communities.
I am Gavin Dillingham, PhD, the Program Director for Clean Energy Policy at HARC, a sustainability research institute in The Woodlands, TX. I have a keen interest in studying climate adaptation and mitigation decision making processes and working with communities and businesses to develop the appropriate strategies to mitigate impacts of climate change.
