Between 1982 and 2008, 116 people in Wisconsin died as a direct result of extremely hot weather. Those numbers are likely to increase, thanks to climate change. According to the Wisconsin Institute on Climate Change Impacts, the Badger State can expect the number of 90 degree days to triple over the next 30 years. We have warning systems for tornadoes and snowstorms, but nothing so sophisticated for heat events. Three graduate students at the University of Wisconsin Nelson Institute are working with four municipalities and UW meteorologists to create a new Wisconsin Heat Health Network. Nelson Institute PhD candidates Elizabeth Berg and Becky Rose, along with Masters candidate Sara Pabich joined Monday Buzz host Brian Standing on November 14, 2022.
