The Politics of Climate Change in Washington DC: "Debates" about the science, confusion about the impacts, and other headaches

Presented by Dr. Johannes Loschnigg, former White House Senior Policy Analyst

As a staff member in both the U.S. Congress and the White House during the last decade, Dr. Loschnigg has been closely involved in the debates about the science of climate change, as well as the need to reduce carbon emissions and shift to cleaner sources of energy. But Congressional action has been slower than many would prefer, often because of misinformation regarding the science of climate change and confusion about the projected impacts. Dr. Loschnigg will provide of overview of this debate and discuss the some of the other hindrances to progress on addressing climate change.
