Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is headed to Washington D.C. Wednesday to testify in front of a Senate committee about the city’s plans for climate change. Other Georgia municipalities across the state are dealing with higher temperatures and extreme weather. Southern leaders, regardless of politics, are now taking actions to mitigate local effects of climate change, all while the federal government continues to roll back protections.... Dr. Kim Cobb, a climate scientist and director of the Global Change Program at Georgia Tech, also joined the conversation to highlight how cities can act as blueprints for future climate policy and what groups are most susceptible to heat exposure. Cobb is also a professor in the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences.
