Climate Group at Baker Institute and the Union of Concerned Scientists in DC

The Baker Institute Climate Group and colleagues from the Union of concerned scientists are organizing a public event structured around an exciting high-level dialogue and information-sharing from experts, including:
− Scientific and health experts who can discuss the climate change risks faced by Texans—which might include, for example, the increasingly frequent and extreme weather events in the state, the potential threat of rising seas, and/or the public health implications of a changing climate.
− A climate scientist who can clarify why it is critical to limit global warming to less than 2°C.
− Representatives of front line and/or environmental justice communities who are most vulnerable to the impacts of fossil fuel company activities and to the longer-term effects of human-caused climate change.
− Shareholder or Investment experts who can lay out the business case for planning a transition to a “carbon constrained” world.
