National Climate Assessment 2014 Webinar Series

Produced on a regular basis by the U.S. Global Change Research Program, the National Climate Assessment (NCA) provides a comprehensive assessment of the current understanding of climate change science, including an overview of likely impacts in the United States by region and sector.

In May 2014, UCS hosted a series of webinars with presentations from NCA authors to share key findings from the report.
