The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) invites you to join us for a briefing on the climate action report released by the majority staff of the House of Representatives Select Committee on the Climate Crisis on June 30. The full title of the report is: Solving the Climate Crisis: The Congressional Action Plan for a Clean Energy Economy and Healthy, Resilient, and Just America.
The Climate Crisis Committee, chaired by Rep. Kathy Castor (Fla.-14), was established at the beginning of the 116th Congress in 2019 to provide a comprehensive framework for future climate legislation. The Committee held 17 hearings on a wide variety of climate change issues and received hundreds of suggestions from stakeholders, including EESI, and the public to inform the report’s recommendations.
This briefing will focus on four core areas of climate policy: climate mitigation, climate adaptation, environmental justice, and public health. Through presentations and a Q&A session, panelists will unpack the key elements of the 538-page report and highlight next steps for congressional action to address the climate crisis.
Speakers for this forum will be announced shortly.
