It seems like there could be a 4th quarter to Vivek's pie chart that covers social processes. I think the work of Eric Klinenberg (Heatwave) and Daniel Aldrich on social capital relates very directly.

Can you speak on how this summers unprecedented heat wave this summer in Portland impacted the communities you were doing research in, especially since many of our facilities aren’t equipped for that type of heat? (I am also based in Portland OR)

Hello Dr. Shandas, you said that you conducted case studies on the cities with highest differences between D and A rated areas, and Indianapolis, the city which my hometown suburb borders, is number 8 on the list. I was curious if you have investigated Indianapolis yet and what your findings were?

On the slide "Systemic Bias and Climate" the graphic looks like you have set up GIS layers to look at mapping - have you done that - i.e. combining layers in a model to predict worst impacts? and what are you finding?

Great presentation. I am thinking about what’s next? Maybe you might talk about power dynamics and the politics of planning? Are we just hoping to get this information out there and somehow planning will change? If we’re duplicating similar dynamics for many generations, are we just left with making change at a snail’s pace? Yes, trying to create dialogue and participation.

Can you speak more about your closing provocations, specifically 2 and 3? Are the economic insecurities that might result from the lack of engagement campaigns referring to effects of gentrification or something else? What are you seeing in Boston as the way the incoming administration is engraving community on the solutions coming in focus?

Are these communication techniques and messagings transferable to rural communities? Have you studied or know who is studying these ideas in rural areas? In thinking about the future of federal climate policy, the rural electorate holds significantly more power than the city electorate.

Add to Q if possible: rural commutes have faced the same issues of disinvestment as urban poor.
