Join Tom DiLiberto, Meteorologist and contractor for NOAA's Climate Program Office communications team as he breaks down how and why we communicate weather information the way we do, why weather information is more important than just a news segment.




Tom DiLiberto is a climate scientist and science communicator working at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Program Office as the consulting climatologist for NOAA’s Climate.gov. He works on communication strategy, writes articles about recent climate events and climate research done at NOAA, and he is also a member of NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center’s El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) team forecasting the strength of developing El Niños and La Niñas. Tom was named America’s first Scientist Idol in 2013 after winning a competition at the Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. And in 2015 and 2016, he served as emcee of the Department of State’s U.S. Center at the United Nations climate change conferences COP21—where the Paris Agreement was forged—and COP22. As emcee, he helped lead the U.S. government’s public outreach space during the negotiations.
