About the speaker: 
Christopher Flavelle is a climate reporter at The New York Times, where he covers how people, governments, institutions and businesses respond to the effects of global warming. He focuses on what climate adaptation means for home building, real estate, insurance, finance, agriculture and other industries, and the unequal effects of those changes. 

He received a 2018 National Press Foundation award for his coverage of the struggle to cope with flooding, and was part of the team of Times reporters who were finalists for the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, for their coverage of the political war on science. He grew up in Toronto and now lives in Washington.
