Following yesterday’s White House report that growing climate risks may impact the United States and beyond, many are considering what can be done to curtail the predictions — and whether or not they are accurate. Dr. Darren Parnell, associate professor of geography and geosciences at Salisbury University, is available to speak with reporters about the issue.

At SU, Parnell teaches courses in severe and hazardous weather, weather analysis and forecasting, and applied climatology. His research interests also include climatic extremes and climate impacts on agriculture. For more information on Parnell, visit his faculty Web site at
