As we embark on a new year, I invite you to take a moment and reflect on 2021. This past year saw multiple natural disasters that affected everyone around the globe.
A panel at the TAMEST Natural Hazards Summit: Responding to and Mitigating the Impacts was dedicated to the problem of inequity in the distribution of aid after a disaster.
The first of the speakers at the TAMEST Natural Hazards Summit: Responding to and Mitigating the Impacts was Michael Coyne, Regional Director, National Weather Service, Southern Region.
One of the distinguished panelists in the first part of the TAMEST Natural Hazards Summit: Responding to and Mitigating the Impacts was UH Energy Fellow Ed Hirs. He is the economist who predicted that the ERCOT grid would fail during an event like Winter Storm Uri in 2013 – a storm that claimed 211 lives. His take on the energy crisis in Texas is that it was highly politicized.
