National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine and The Climate Communications Initiative present Climate Conversations: Sea Level Rise. The online event features a conversation about “how to respond to the rising seas already threatening people, infrastructure and property on U.S. coastlines.” Climate change models project sea level rise across our nation’s coasts by an additional one foot on average in the next 30 years — coastal managers and communities must plan now!
Participants in Climate Conversations: Sea Level Rise include the following industry experts: Tancred Miller, the Policy and Planning Manager for the North Carolina Division of Coastal Management; Christina Toms, a Senior Environmental Scientist and Ecological Engineer at the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board; and, Robert Kopp, a Professor in the Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences and codirector of the University Office of Climate Action at Rutgers University.
About Climate Conversations
Climate Conversations: Pathways to Action is a monthly webinar series from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine that aims to convene high-level, crosscutting, nonpartisan conversations about issues relevant to national policy action on climate change.
About the Climate Communications Initiative
In 2018, the National Academies launched the Climate Communications Initiative (CCI) to better leverage and unlock the storehouse of climate-related work from across the institution in order to more effectively meet and anticipate the needs of decision makers at all levels of society. An external Advisory Committee, together with a large internal staff team, developed a strategic plan for the CCI to guide the National Academies’ efforts moving forward.
