Panel Discussion: Bipartisan Climate Solutions

Panel Discussion: Bipartisan Climate Solutions

A moderated discussion about bipartisan climate solutions, with Reps. Joe Neguse (Colorado) and John Curtis (Utah)

Please join U.S. representatives Joe Neguse (D-Colorado, in person) and John Curtis (R-Utah, virtual) in a panel discussion about bipartisan climate solutions. Learn about the lawmakers' motivations for working on climate change issues, where they see opportunities for building consensus on efforts to mitigate and adapt to climate change, and thoughts on reducing the political polarization of the issue. Recent CU Boulder Environmental Studies graduate Renae Marshall and CIRES Fellow Matt Burgess, Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies and the 2021-2022 Benson Center Faculty Fellow, will moderate.

This event is co-sponsored by CIRES and the Bruce D. Benson Center for the Study of Western Civilization.

Panelists: 

  • Joe Neguse, U.S. Representative, Colorado’s 2nd District, member of the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis
  • John Curtis (virtual), U.S. Representative for Utah’s 3rd District, Chair of the House Conservative Climate Caucus

Moderators: 

  • Matt Burgess, CIRES Fellow, Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies, Affiliate Faculty of Economics, and Faculty Fellow of the Benson Center
  • Renae Marshall, Spring 2021 College of Arts and Sciences’ Outstanding Graduate, currently a first-year environmental policy Ph.D. student at the University of California, Santa Barbara

Abstract:

When trying to adapt to a changing climate, with all the inherent uncertainties about how the future may play out, resource managers often turn to scenario planning as a tool.  Managers use scenario planning to explore plausible ways the climate may change, allowing them to work with climate change uncertainty rather than being paralyzed by it.  Once identified, scenarios of the future are used to develop proactive measures to prepare for and adapt to scenarios of change.   A key part of scenario planning is generating a list of potential future climates we may experience.  This webinar will describe and compare different approaches to generate the climate futures and identify an approach that captures a broad range of climate conditions (a key ingredient to developing scenarios) across both near and long-term planning horizons.  We then will describe tools for creating reproducible climate futures, including an R package and training materials that enables users to develop their own projections, and provide guidance on their use.  Over the past decade, we have operationalized the generation of climate futures and with the recent development of the Reproducible Climate Futures (RCF) R package, standardized and streamlined their production.  We have found climate futures and scenarios offer an adaptable approach to planning across a broad range of management contexts.   

About the speakers:

David Lawrence specializes in aquatic ecology and has worked as a climate change scientist within the National Park Service Climate Change Response Program since 2017.  In this role David conducts and translates climate change research to support forward-looking land and water management.  David has a PhD in ecology from the University of Washington. 

Amber Runyon is an ecologist for the National Park Service Climate Change Response Program where she collaborates with park managers to provide management-relevant projections of future-climate that serve as the basis for climate-informed planning. Amber has a PhD in ecology from Colorado State University.
