‚ÄčIn 2008, Congress asked the National Academy of Sciences to establish a Committee to investigate and make recommendations on the steps needed and strategies required in response to global climate change. The National Academy report, America's Climate Choices, was submitted to Congress in May 2011.

Dr. Carnesale, who chaired this Committee, will identify and discuss key issues addressed and give an overview of the report's recommendations to guide America's efforts to control greenhouse gas emissions and provide leadership to prepare for unavoidable climate change effects.
