National Academies report, “America’s Climate Choices” – coming May 19, with webcast

I get e-mail from the good press people at the National Academies (of Science, Engineering, and Medicine):

America’s Climate Choices Reports to be Released May 19 at a Public Briefing

On May 19th, three reports in the America’s Climate Choices suite of studies will be released at a public briefing that begins at 10 a.m. EDT in the Lecture Room of the National Academy of Sciences building, 2100 C St., N.W., Washington. The reports are: Advancing the Science of Climate Change, which focuses on the scientific evidence regarding human-induced climate change and future research needs; Limiting the Magnitude of Future Climate Change, which assesses options for limiting greenhouse gas emissions and taking other actions to reduce the magnitude of climate change; and Adapting to the Impacts of Climate Change, which focuses on options to improving the nation’s capacity to adapt to climate change impacts.

Ralph J. Cicerone, president of the National Academy of Sciences, will deliver opening remarks, and members of the panels that authored the reports will discuss the reports findings and take questions.

America’s Climate Choices also includes two additional reports that will be released later this year: Informing an Effective Response to Climate Change will examine how best to provide decision makers with information on climate change, and an overarching report that looks across the topics of the four panel reports to offer an integrated view of the challenges and opportunities in the nation’s efforts to confront climate change.

The public is invited to the briefing and should RSVP to attend at Those who cannot attend may watch a live video webcast and submit questions at

This address works better for giving your RSVP to attend.  A fourth report pends:

Still upcoming is the fourth and final panel report, Informing an Effective Response to Climate Change.

    Education Secretary Michael Gove’s New Education Policy to Turn schools into ‘Academy’ Faces Hurdles as Disappointment Rings the British Education Corridors…

    I found your entry interesting thus I’ve added a Trackback to it on my weblog :)…

    Klem apparently belongs to the “I’m a blooming idiot” segment of the population.


  3. Ed Darrell says:

    Wouldn’t it be great that death and destruction were “so 2009?”

    Wake up, Klem. We’ve got three Exxon Valdez spills in the Gulf of Mexico right now. We can’t afford to keep mining oil for SUVs, nor even for school buses.

    If you’re right that America will sleep through the warnings, then the spirit of Paul Revere has moved to another nation. Farewell, America.

    I doubt it’s that bad.


  4. Klem says:

    Ah folks, it’s time to wake up and smell the coffee. Climate change legislation in the USA is now dead, so the next batch of climate change scare studies due out next week will be greeted with just more total media silence. The media and the public do not believe these scare studes anymore, they are so 2009. Climate science has no credibility, climategate ended that.


  5. […] This video, from 2009, explains why the National Academies will release four reports on climate change, three of them next Wednesday. […]
