Oklahoma Voices:
Oklahoma’s Changing Climate (Feb 23, 2008)

In the wake of December’s disastrous ice storm and last week’s latest round of wintry weather, we speak with Derek Arndt (pictured above) -- Associate State Climatologist at the Oklahoma Climatological Survey – about what causes such weather conditions, how Oklahoma's climate has changed over the past few decades and what the long term outlook might be. Also, Norman Mayor Cindy Rosenthal discusses environmental steps her city is taking in response to climate change. She spoke as part of the roundtable discussion, “Global Warming: Impacts and Solutions in Oklahoma,” held Thursday, January 31 on the University of Oklahoma campus.
