Climate Change


Join us for an international conference on climate change mitigation and adaptation.  This conference will provide a neutral forum to address emerging policies and technologies for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions and mitigation along with estimating climate change impacts and adaptation strategies.  Plenary Panels discussing Climate Action, Resilience, and Climate Communication are in the works.  A Plenary Session on Oil & Gas Sector Methane Emissions is also being planned.

The conference is convened as a neutral science-based forum for addressing climate change related issues such as:

•  Methodologies for identifying and estimating climate change risks and impacts
•  Strategies and technologies for reducing emissions of greenhouse gasses (GHGs) and other climate-changing pollutants
•  Practices for increasing the resiliency of communities and facilities to the changing climate.

Located in the Washington DC area, the conference will engage with the new leadership on Capitol Hill and the Administration to explore policy measures and recommend approaches for making meaningful progress.

Registration is open!

Keynote Speakers: 
General Ron Keys, United States Air Force (Retired) and Michael McCormick, AICP, Senior Planner, CA Governor's Office of Planning and Research

Preliminary Conference Agenda

However, there is now strong evidence that significant global warming is occurring."    Read the full article.
