The Center for American Progress brown bag will feature comments from three members of its energy opportunity team: Joe Romm, Senior Fellow and Editor of Climate Progress, will address the issue of how our change in the understanding of the science of climate change in the last two years effects our assessment of our clean energy needs.

Jake Caldwell, Director of Policy for Agriculture, Trade and Energy, will address efforts of domestic groups and the US Congress to take up the problem of global adaptation to climate change. He may also comment on the role of border adjustments in domestic and international climate agreements. Senior Fellow Andrew Light will discuss CAP's work with the Global Climate Network, a collection of eight global think tanks, currently collaborating on problems of technology transfer.
