 Last November, President Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping surprised the global community and made history by jointly announcing their plans to combat climate change. This week, the United States followed through on that announcement by officially submitting the nation’s target  to the United Nations ahead of efforts to forge a global climate change accord in Paris in December 2015. President Obama introduced a blueprint for cutting greenhouse emissions in the United States by nearly a third over the next decade. These actions, along with strong commitments submitted by other countries, represent real momentum on the road to a successful climate change agreement. Join us this Thursday, April 2, at 2 PM EST to  learn hear an overview of current climate change policy at the federal level learn how your community can engage in the initiatives that form President Obama’s climate blueprint.  To register, click here.
