In episode 67 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons talks with Rich Sorkin, CEO and Co-Founder of Jupiter Intel.  Rich shares the history of Jupiter Intel as a silicon valley start up and his short and long term goals in this emerging field.  Doug and Rich discuss Jupiter’s core business of risk modeling and the uncertainties associated with future modeling.  They also talk about emerging businesses in the adaptation sector and the role of profit making entities like Jupiter and the ‘wild wild west’ mentality that exists in some areas of future modeling. These topics and much more!

Bonus:  Doug hosts Claire Wayner, a Baltimore area teen who is leading efforts to recruit youth for the upcoming Zero Hour Climate March. Be inspired by her story!
