How Climate Change Affects the United States

February 25 @ 2:00 PM - 2:30 PM

The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI), Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), and National Wildlife Federation (NWF) invite you to a briefing on the latest climate change findings, as reported by leading scientists in the 4th National Climate Assessment (NCA) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) Special Report. Join us to learn more about how climate change is expected to affect the United States and how federal, state, and local governments can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help communities adapt to rapidly encroaching risks over the next decade and beyond. Learn how your Congressional district is being impacted by climate change, and how it could benefit from investing in low-carbon solutions and advance planning to safeguard lives, infrastructure, and businesses.
