Climate Science: The Next Frontiers

Although Congress has so far roundly rejected those cuts and saved critical satellite missions from the chopping block, just maintaining the status quo will still set the United States and the global community back in their understanding of how climate change is affecting Earth’s natural systems and what it will mean for human health, the economy, and society as a whole. Please join the Center for American Progress ahead of the Global Climate Action Summit for a discussion about the critical research questions that make up the next frontiers of climate science.

Beyond the ADA

Twenty-eight years after the ADA's passage, much work remains. People with disabilities face poverty rates nearly three times higher than people without disabilities. They are disproportionately likely to live and work in conditions that are hazardous to their health and are especially vulnerable to extreme weather events, which are only becoming more frequent due to climate change. And they are massively overrepresented in our nation’s prisons and jails, with people behind bars at least three times as likely to report a disability as the general population.

Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Weldon Angelos, who was sentenced to 55 years incarceration as a first time offender for marijuana sales due to harsh federal mandatory minimum sentences.
