American Research Leadership to Ensure a Safe Climate


Register for this Event  

Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center and SilverLining for a discussion on interventions for ensuring safety against the risks of a warming climate, and considerations for the US research sector.

The recent US National Climate Assessment gave a dire warning about the near-term risks of a warming climate. Our distinguished panelists will discuss the future of research in atmospheric climate intervention (sometimes called “solar geoengineering”) in the United States, a new National Academy of Sciences effort to define a responsible research agenda and possible paths for governance.

Join us for what promises to be a lively and informative discussion. This event is on-the-record and open to the media. Light food and refreshments will be served.

**The Hon. Jerry McNerney, Representative, CA-09, US House of Representatives
**Amanda Staudt, Director of the Board of Atmospheric and Climate Sciences, National Academy of Sciences
