By 2100, Sacramento is expected to feel much like Phoenix, which last year had more than 100 days over 100 F. In this Unfold episode, co-host Kat Kerlin discusses her “Becoming Arizona” series, which looks at how to prepare for a hotter future. We also examine how cities nationwide are dealing with triple threats: rising temperatures, racial inequities and a pandemic. And we’ll discuss the efforts needed to build socially just, climate-resilient communities.

Mary Cadenasso, professor, and landscape and urban ecologist at UC Davis

Stephen Wheeler, professor of landscape architecture and urban design at UC Davis

Helene Margolis, associate adjunct professor in the Department of Internal Medicine, UC Davis School of Medicine

Adrienne Lawson, senior director for the UC Davis Office for Health Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
