In June 2004, the California Energy Commission held the first Annual Climate Change Conference, "From Climate to Economics: Anticipating Impacts of Climate Change in California." The conference was a forum for state-specific impacts from climate change and mitigation strategies. It facilitated a lively discussion with world experts on cutting-edge climate change science.
Based on the first year's success, the Energy Commission and CalEPA are pleased to present the Second Annual Climate Change Research Conference, in conjunction with the First Scientific Conference West Coast Governors' Global Warming Initiative.
The 2005 conference presentations are tailored to facilitate an interdisciplinary information exchange -- a proven approach for conveying technical information to policy makers, managers and the general public.
