Study: St. Louis is at higher risk of a climate disaster than comparable cities—but we’re also better prepared for one

If you’re sizing up the chance of a climate disaster in, let’s say (because researchers did) 2040, St. Louis is at greater risk than many comparable U.S. cities. But we also score higher on readiness to cope with said disaster.

The data comes from the Notre Dame Adaptation Initiative, and Eyiul Tekin, a Ph.D. candidate at Washington University and a summer associate in Clever Real Estate’s research department, analyzed its import for St. Louis.
