Copenhagen, DK – The Center for American Progress and the Bellona Foundation announce a live web broadcast wrap up panel on Copenhagen and the future of American climate legislation direct from the Copenhagen climate summit shortly after President Obama is expected to address the summit. In addition to American Progress, panelists include the presidents of three important environmental NGOs: Sierra Club, Union of Concerned Scientists, and the Natural Resources Defense Council.
How does the endgame of the Copenhagen summit look after Obama’s speech? What are the possible outcomes in the final hours? How should Congress take the results of the meeting and move forward with comprehensive domestic climate legislation?
