America's Climate Choices Webinar Series

UCS is excited to offer a series of webinar briefings on the National Research Council reports, America’s Climate Choices (ACC). Authors from the four panel reports will present the key findings from each and then answer your questions. ACC is a congressionally requested suite of studies to inform and guide the nation’s response to climate change. The findings reaffirm the strength of the science of climate change and represent guiding documents on the urgent need to reduce global warming emissions and prepare for the changes to come.

We encourage you to use the information and slides in your classrooms and speaking engagements. Summaries from each of the panel reports and the full reports are available on the America's Climate Choices website.

The PowerPoint presentations for all events are available by request, please email Jean Sideris.
