Experts to discuss new federal climate science report for the U.S.
New observations and research have increased our scientific understanding of past, current and future climate change since the Third U.S. National Climate Assessment (NCA3) was published in May 2014. The CSSR is designed to capture that new information and build on the existing body of science in order to summarize the current state of knowledge about climate change and provide the scientific foundation for Volume II of NCA4, which is also being released as a draft for public comment.
