While scientists had previously surmised that the link existed, robust empirical evidence was lacking. Read more: http://stanford.io/1dsRsMu
Climate Change Impacts: The Risks and How to Reduce Them
September 18, 2014
Scientists from the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment — including contributors to the recent United Nations IPCC report on climate extremes and adaptation — joined other practitioners in a panel discussion on the findings of their latest work related to climate change impacts and risks. The event was held Sept. 17, 2014 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
Stanford Woods Institute Senior Fellow Noah Diffenbaugh speaks at congressional meeting on climate change (beginning at 0:47:18)
September 18, 2013
To illustrate the human cost of climate change, Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), ranking member of the Energy and Commerce Committee, invited citizens affected by climate and extreme weather events to speak before members of the U.S. House of Representatives. Stanford Woods Institute Senior Fellow Noah Diffenbaugh (Earth Sciences) was the only climate expert invited to provide a scientific perspective. The meeting of the Safe Climate Caucus, an informal group Waxman heads, came a day before the House energy panel was set to question Cabinet members about the President’s Climate Action Plan and a few days before the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency was set to release carbon dioxide rules for new power plants.
