Unpacking the Fifth National Climate Assessment – EESI Briefing

January 18 @ 3:00 pm 4:30 pm

Rayburn House Office Building 2168 (Gold Room)
45 Independence Ave SW, Washington, DC 20515
Free and open to the public

The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) invites you to a briefing about the U.S. Global Change Research Program’s fifth National Climate Assessment (NCA5). NCA5 is the most comprehensive, holistic, and inclusive report to date on national climate risk and response. Panelists will discuss the report’s emphasis on the need for “rapid and deep” greenhouse gas emission reductions and the resulting economic and health benefits. The report also highlights the importance of investing in adaptation to the impacts of climate change—impacts which exacerbate existing climate and social injustices. 

NCA5 draws from a wide breadth of scientific literature across the fields of energy, natural resources, air quality, agriculture, and other sectors to provide insights tailored to different regions and communities across the United States. Speakers will discuss how members of Congress can use this report to understand the nuances of climate impacts and solutions in their districts and states, leveraging its takeaways to inform decision-making at the national level

Speakers for this forum include:

  • Allison Crimmins, Director, National Climate Assessment, U.S. Global Change Research Program; Office of Science & Technology Policy, Executive Office of the President (EOP) | @WhiteHouse
  • Adrienne Hollis, Vice President of Environmental Justice, Public Health, and Community Revitalization, National Wildlife Federation | @NWF
  • More speakers to be announced

This event is free and open to the public.
