  • Rating12345

The National Academy of Sciences is hosting a two-day summit on
"America’s Climate Choices," which will lay the groundwork for a series
of congressionally requested Academy reports. Written by four panels
comprising almost 100 experts, America’s Climate Choices will examine
the magnitude of climate change likely to occur and advise how best to
adapt to, or mitigate, the impact. Speakers at the summit will include
members of Congress, Obama administration officials, leading climate
change scientists, heads of environmental groups and energy companies,
as well as national security experts.
Reporters and the general public who cannot attend the event in Washington, D.C. can watch a live webcast at http://www.national-academies.org. Viewers can also submit questions to the panel for a Q&A session at the end of each day.

Presenters include :
Albert Carnesale, chair of America’s Climate Choices, and chancellor emeritus and professor, University of California, Los Angeles
William Chameides, vice chair of America’s Climate Choices, and dean, Nicholas School of the Environment, Duke University
Ralph Cicerone, president, National Academy of Sciences
Rep. Bart Gordon (D-Tenn.), chair, House Committee on Science and Technology
Jane Lubchenco, administrator, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
Rep. Alan Mollohan (D-W.Va.), member, House Committee on Appropriations
Susan Solomon, America’s Climate Choices committee member; senior scientist, NOAA; and former co-chair, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Working Group I
James Woolsey, former director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, and venture partner, VantagePoint Venture Partners

Organizers also want to hear from the public to help ensure the study will be as effective as possible. People can suggest questions they would like the reports to address or propose literature or opinion pieces they would like considered during the study process. Feedback and comments may be submitted through April 17 at http://www.americasclimatechoices.org/input.shtml
