ADVISORY: Report Launch: Can The U.S. Get There From Here?

WRI to release major new report on climate change and U.S. emissions

WASHINGTON, Feb. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --On Wednesday, February 6, the World Resources Institute will host an event at the  National Press Club to release a major new report on climate and U.S. emissions: "Can the U.S. Get There From Here?" The report examines pathways for the United States to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions using existing federal authorities and state actions.

In his inauguration, President Obama pledged to make climate change a priority in his second term. This report lays out the steps the Administration can take to make significant progress on climate change in the coming years.

The report explores whether the U.S. is on track to meet its commitment to reduce its emissions by 17 percent by 2020 (below 2005 levels). It looks at what steps the federal government and states can take to meet this goal, and to go further. And, it explains why this matters at home and overseas.

The event will feature commentary by  Dr. Susan Tierney, Managing Principal of the Analysis Group, WRI Board member, and former Assistant Secretary for Policy at the U.S. Department of Energy;  Dr. Andrew Steer, President, World Resources Institute; and  Nicholas Bianco, Senior Associate, World Resources Institute, and the lead author of the report.

This analysis is an update to WRI's seminal report from 2010, "Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions in the United States Using Existing Federal Authorities and State Action," which focused on how the U.S. could reduce its emissions without Congressional action.

A continental breakfast will be served.
