Upcoming Event: Session on the National Climate Assessment at AAAS 2015
A session at this year’s annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) will focus on USGCRP’s 2014 National Climate Assessment as a resource for climate literacy and decision making. This session will explore how the report is being used in various sectors to address societal issues, and it will seek input to help shape future research efforts that can both advance climate science and benefit society. In addition, the session will describe an ongoing engagement between the scientific community, climate literacy stakeholders, and decision makers to ensure that the National Climate Assessment can continue to deliver up-to-date climate information.
The session is open to all conference participants and will take place Sunday, February 15, from 1:30–4:30 PM in Room LL20A at the San Jose Convention Center. Presentations by four speakers will be followed by a group discussion. Speakers at the session include:
