EVENT ADVISORY: Climate Science: The Next Frontiers
Press Advisory

Join CAP at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco

Washington, D.C. — The Trump administration has twice proposed unprecedented, draconian budget cuts to the federal agencies and programs that support climate science research and data collection. Although Congress has so far roundly rejected those cuts and saved critical satellite missions and other programs 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 at the Global Climate Action Summit for a discussion about the critical research questions that make up the next frontiers of climate science.
