Recently Retired AZ State Climatologist Reflects On Teaching State About Drought, Climate
As the debate in Arizona and elsewhere continues about how to address climate change and the effects of increasingly extreme heat and drought, one of the most visible faces on those issues is moving on.
Nancy Selover has been Arizona’s state climatologist since 2007; she’s also been a research professor in Arizona State University's School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning.
This spring, she retired from both posts, although she says she plans to keep paying attention to issues like drought and urban heat islands.
The Show spoke with her to learn about this change and to reflect on her time in both jobs.
