Disaster Zone Podcast: Behavioral Impacts of Climate Change

This is one to listen to!

Every once in awhile I read something, watch or listen to information that gets my attention and where I learn a great deal about a topic. This Disaster Zone Podcast: Behavioral Impacts of Climate Change is one such point of information.

I highly recommend it for your listening to broaden your perspective and knowledge about how climate change is impacting our personal thinking and behaviors—perhaps without us even recognizing it! Like, why do riots happen more when it is hot outside?

Here's the podcast description:

Almost everything we read about climate change has to do with the environmental impacts of a warming climate and then the physical impacts to infrastructure. In this podcast we focus on the human impacts of a warming climate and increasing temperatures on humans from a behavioral perspective. My guest is Steve Crimando, the founder and principal of Behavioral Science Applications LLC, and the director of the Homeland Security Human Factors Institute. He is an internationally known consultant and educator focused on the human element in security, emergency management, and business continuity. This is a very informative podcast on the impacts of heat on people, to include how heat impacts the development of children.

Eric Holdeman is a contributing writer for Emergency Management magazine and is the former director of the King County, Wash., Office of Emergency Management.
