Let Your Voice be Heard on Climate Change

The National Academy of Sciences is hosting a two-day summit March 30-31 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 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.

The general public 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.
  • 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.
