Description

Setting the Stage: Panel on Climate Change (with funding from Marin Sanitary Service) This panel brought together three climate change experts, each of whom focused on a different dimension of climate change. Presenters, in order of their presentations:

Andrew Jones, Ph.D. is a research scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and the deputy director of the Climate Readiness Institute, an organization devoted to developing climate solutions for the SF Bay Area. For the last several years, he has been building and running climate models in order to improve our understanding of the Earth system and how humans are changing it. More recently, through his work with the Climate Readiness Institute, he is engaging with climate practitioners across the Bay Area to address information gaps that prevent effective responses to climate change. His presentation focuses on the science of climate change and its implications for things that matter to people - health, sea level rise, droughts and flooding, etc.

Lara Rozzell is the Renewable Energy Coordinator for the Pacific West Region of the National Park Service. She has worked on renewable energy and human infrastructure impacts on our natural world, including climate change, for over 20 years. Her presentation discusses the National Park Service's response to a) climate change and b) our society's energy shift from fossil fuels to renewable sources.

Wil Burns, Ph.D. is Co-Director of the Forum for Climate Engineering Assessment at American’s University’s School of International Service. He has worked on climate change issues for thirty years, including as the founding director of the Energy Policy & Climate program at Johns Hopkins University. His presentation explores the the potential promise and perils associated with climate geoengineering.
