Climate Change, Drought and Risk in Arizona

Our June breakfast meeting features a presentation on the most dynamic issue facing property and casualty insurers today: climate change. Climate change presents systemic risk factors which could lead to capital adequacy and other challenges for insurers. Recent reports – such as the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Summary for Policymakers issued October 8, 2018, to the World Economic Forum’s Global Risk Report issued January 15, 2019 – demonstrate that the insurance industry needs to plan for the manner in which climate risk could have a serious impact on the way their insured companies operate.


Come to our breakfast to hear a renowned climate change scientist, Dr. Nicholas McKay, discuss Climate Change, Drought and Risk in Arizona. Dr. McKay will also discuss climate change risk factors in other parts of the U.S. The work of Dr. McKay contributes to a better understanding of climate change and how we may prepare for and adapt to these changes.


Dr. Nicholas McKay is an Assistant Professor of climate science at Northern Arizona University. A lifelong Arizonan, he holds a Ph.D. in Geoscience from the University of Arizona, and researches how and why climate changes throughout the world both now, and in the past. He teaches multiple classes on climate change, climate analysis, and data science and analysis. Dr. McKay’s work is widely published and cited to.


We look forward to seeing you at our June 19th breakfast!
