CU-Boulder Climate Roundtable
Congressman Jared Polis hosted a climate roundtable with Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz and retired U.S. Coast Guard Vice Admiral Manson Brown, Assistant Secretary for Observations and Prediction at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, on August 31 at CU-Boulder. The topic of the event was climate change and the resources available for study and application. Three main topics were covered at the roundtable: the Colorado Climate Change Report, Regional Climate Resources, and the Colorado Energy Research Collaboratory.
CU-Boulder was well-represented as were Colorado State University, the U.S Forest Service, the U.S. Geological Survey, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Also in attendance were former U.S. Senator Tim Wirth and State Senator Matt Jones (D-Louisville). After the climate roundtable, Secretary Moniz gave a public lecture at Wolf Law and gave the keynote address at the CU Denver Wirth Chair annual luncheon.
