This summer, Richmond and Carmel became the latest Indiana municipalities to lay out a coordinated vision for how community leaders plan to reduce local greenhouse gas emissions and protect residents and businesses from climate change impacts, such as extreme heat and precipitation. Since 2019, both communities have been involved with ERI’s Resilience Cohort, which provides guidance and support for Indiana city, town, and county governments to measure and reduce local greenhouse gas emissions and implement climate resilience strategies.

When a team of IU researchers noticed that observational data collected from weather stations along the coast of California showed cooling trends over the late 20th century, they suspected something was wrong with the data. The ensuing investigation led to findings that can help inform future climate modeling efforts relevant to regions, states, and cities.
A grant from the Herbert Simon Family Foundation is helping to create professional opportunities for Indiana University students interested in climate and sustainability and bolstering efforts in central Indiana to counter climate change impacts, such as extreme precipitation and heat.
As extreme precipitation becomes more common in the Midwest and across the country due to climate change, Indiana University researchers are co-leading a project to better understand and predict weather phenomena that contribute to heavy rainfall, which can cause costly and life-threatening flash flooding.
After a summer of climate action, McKinney Climate Fellows returned to their respective Indiana University campuses this fall for the start of the academic year. They bring with them new knowledge, technical skills, and an expanded perspective on career opportunities in climate and the environment.
