Energy Efficiency in EPA's Clean Power Plan: Using Building Block #4 to Set and Meet Emissions Goals

As states consider their response to EPA’s proposal and their options for compliance, they need to understand the basis for building block #4, the implications of using energy efficiency policies and programs for compliance, and how to evaluate the energy savings resulting from these programs. This webinar, co-hosted by Resources for the Future (RFF) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), will address these aspects of the opportunities and challenges for energy efficiency under EPA’s Clean Power Plan.

Film Screening of "Extreme Realities - Severe Weather, Climate Change & Our National Security"

Over the past year, the defense and intelligence communities have issued a slew of reports making it clear that climate change is here and having real impacts on national security. In a new documentary narrated by Matt Damon, "Extreme Realities: Severe Weather, Climate Change, and Our National Security," producers Marilyn and Hal Weiner talk with experts like former CIA Director James Woolsey about climate change, how it could impact national security, and what policymakers can do about it. The Wilson Center will host a screening followed by a panel discussion featuring Marilyn and Hal Weiner alongside Ghassem Asrar of the World Climate Research Program, Sherri Goodman of CNA, and Paul O’Brien of Oxfam America.
