Event Summary

The battle over climate change, carbon pollution, and America's energy future is not confined to Congress. In fact, considerable progress is happening at the state and local level with 31 states, and DC, setting targets for renewable energy and over 1,000 mayors signing on to the US Conference of Mayors' Climate Protection Agreement. The policy debate is also migrating from Washington to the states as the EPA prepares a carbon pollution standard and begins the implementation process. Will the efforts at the state and local levels develop solutions that achieve the goals of the Climate Action Plan? Or will the uncompromising attitudes of the national debate trickle down and further roadblock climate change action?

In partnership with the Center for American Progress, the State of Climate Change will take place at the Newseum's Knight Conference Center from 8-11am on Thursday, December 12.
