Jane Gilbert is the world’s first Chief Heat Officer. Her task is
to prepare and protect Miami’s citizens for and from the heat.


Extreme heat is responsible for more deaths than all other
climate driven disasters in the US combined. We talk about around
12.000 death each year. By 2100, according to a study by the
University of Washington, the annual toll could be close to
100.000. By then, 94% of Miami Beach would be underwater. Not a
small task to manage.


Jane's strategies and goals, the effectiveness of extreme heat
toolkits and the new health task force. About climate resilience
hubs and heat shelters. The consequences for peoples health and
living standards and whether the rich are staying healthy and the
poor are dying faster. And: Why Miami's first CHO is a role model
for Los Angeles, Athens, Freetown in Sierra Leone and many more.
