Every year the National Park Service attempts to predict the timing and peak of the gorgeous cherry blossom trees in Washington, DC. How do they do this? How is climate change affecting bloom times and predictions and what are the other consequences of climate change on these DC treasures? Join the National Park Service Climate Scientist, Dr. Patrick Gonzalez, and Park Ranger, Dorene Ruffing, as they lead a private tour of the blossoms and explain how they can sometimes be fooled by the cherry trees!
April 8 | 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) invites you to a briefing examining key policy and legal issues associated with the Environmental Protection Agency's proposed rules to limit carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from existing power plants, which account for 38.7 percent of domestic carbon emissions. According to the EPA, its proposed Clean Power Plan (CPP) would lead to a 30 percent cut in carbon emissions from the power sector by 2030, compared to 2005 levels. How will these cuts be implemented? And will the CPP hold up in court?
April 8 | 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM
