California's big climate change conference

Next week I'll be attending the Fourth Annual Climate Change Research Conference in Sacramento. Sponsored by the California Energy Commission & California Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA), this four-day event brings together scientists and policy makers to share the most up-to-date findings and challenges regarding global warming and its impacts on the varied ecosystems and population centers in the state.

This will be an opportunity for me to meet other individuals and organizational representatives with interests in this area, and it will provide me with a good baseline for where government agencies are currently positioned with regard to climate change risk assessment.

As my next post explains, I'm narrowing my focus and adding another wrinkle to the mission of Climate Frog.
