Webinar: Climate Stabilization Targets: Emissions, Concentrations, and Impacts Over Decades to Millennia
The Union of Concerned Scientists is excited to announce a webinar briefing on the National Research Council’s report, Climate Stabilization Targets: Emissions, Concentrations, and Impacts Over Decades to Millennia. Authors of the report will present key findings and then answer your questions.
More from Climate Stabilization Targets:
“Emissions of carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels have ushered in a new epoch where human activities will largely determine the evolution of Earth’s climate. Because carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is long lived, it can effectively lock the Earth and future generations into a range of impacts, some of which could become very severe. Therefore, emissions reductions choices made today matter in determining impacts experienced not just over the next few decades, but in the coming centuries and millennia. Policy choices can be informed by recent advances in climate science that quantify the relationships between increases in carbon dioxide and global warming, related climate changes, and resulting impacts.”
Join the esteemed authors of the report for a 40-minute webinar briefing, followed by a question-and-answer session. The webinar will be held on Friday, May 6, from 1:00-2:00 p.m. (EDT), 10:00-11:00 a.m. (PDT).
Presenters: Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, Texas Tech University; Dr. Damon Matthews, Concordia University, Montreal; and Dr. Gary Yohe, Wesleyan University.
