Messaging on Extreme Heat in Northern Europe

Dan Chapman joins us from the U.K. on this episode. He’s an emergency management planner over there and comes on the show to discuss how they’re handling the messaging around the recent heat emergency they dealt with. Our meteorologists share the weather and climate reasons for the heatwave much of the earth’s northern hemisphere is experiencing over recent weeks. We talk about how messaging the public with alerts is a fine line between providing actionable information and the perception of nagging.
