Gov. Deal Addresses Irma's Aftermath

Sep 14, 2017

Today on “Political Rewind,” we look at the damages that Irma wreaked on Georgia. Governor Nathan Deal joins us to discuss the areas of the state that are in the greatest need of help, where damage is greatest, and where the largest numbers of people have been displaced. What does the governor expect the federal government will do for the state? How quickly will recovery money flow from Washington to Georgia?

Then, we talk with the head of the Georgia Climate Project, a group of scientists based at state universities. They’re working to make Georgia a leader in combatting climate change causes and effects. We ask: does climate change play a role in the formation of ever stronger storms?

Panelists:

Daniel Rochberg ­– Georgia Climate Project, instructor in environmental science at Emory University

Beth Schapiro – Retired Democratic pollster and consultant

Todd Rehm – Republican consultant and editor of Georgia Pundit.
