Past Conference Calls
May 2013 conference call
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, climate champion
Nearly every week, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) goes to the floor of the Senate to speak about climate change and the urgent need for congressional action. Earlier this year he organized the Bicameral Climate Change Task Force, which meets regularly to discuss national climate policy. Along with three other members of Congress, Whitehouse authored acarbon tax discussion draft seeking public comment.

Guest speaker: Dr. Martin Tresguerres, Scripps Institution of Oceanography
Our February guest speaker is Dr. Martin Tresguerres, assistant professor at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego. He’ll shed some light on global warming’s evil twin – ocean acidification, which could lead to a collapse of the marine food chain if left unchecked. Dr. Tresguerres is currently working with a four-year grant from the National Science Foundation to study the effect of ocean acidification on coral. He’ll share some preliminary findings from that study.
January 2013 conference call:

Dr. Willer is an Associate Professor of Sociology and Psychology at UC, Berkeley, where is currently a fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences. A previous guest on CCL conference calls, he was co-author of “Apocalypse soon? Dire messages reduce belief in global warming by contradicting just-world beliefs.” In a forthcoming paper, he examines the differences in moral views between Republicans and Democrats on big issues such as climate change and how understanding these differences is key to the messaging that resonates with various groups.
December 2012 conference call:
Guest speaker: Dr. Kevin Trenberth, National Center for Atmospheric Research
In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, there are many questions about this disaster's connection to climate change. For answers, we turn to Dr. Kevin E. Trenberth, Distinguished Senior Scientist in the Climate Analysis Section at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. From New Zealand, he obtained his Sc. D. in meteorology in 1972 from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was a lead author of the 1995, 2001 and 2007 Scientific Assessment of Climate Change reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, which went to the IPCC. He has published over 480 scientific articles or papers, including 47 books or book chapters, and over 213 refereed journal articles and has given many invited scientific talks as well as appearing in a number of television, radio programs and newspaper articles. He is listed among the top 20 authors in highest citations in all of geophysics. He recently wrote in The Scientist, “As Mark Twain said in the late 19th century, ‘Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it.’ Now humans are changing the weather, and nobody does anything about it! As we have seen this year, whether from drought, heat waves and wild fires, or super storms, there is a cost to not taking action to slow climate change, and we are experiencing this now.”
November 2012 Conference Call
Guest speaker: Dr. Wendy Ring, Physicians for Social Responsibility
Dr. Wendy Ring, a physician in Northern California who has practiced family medicine for 25 years, will talk about the impact climate change is expected to have on our health.

October 2012 Conference Call:
Guest speaker: Dr. James Hansen, director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies
Our October guest is America’s leading climate scientist, Dr. James Hansen, author of “Storms of My Grandchildren.” Hansen is perhaps best known for bringing global warming to the world’s attention in the 1980s, when he first testified before Congress. A member of the National Academy of Sciences and an adjunct professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Columbia University and at Columbia’s Earth Institute, his most recent report draws the connection between extreme weather events of recent years and climate change. Writing in a Washington Post oped, Hansen said, “Our analysis shows that, for the extreme hot weather of the recent past, there is virtually no explanation other than climate change.”
September 2012 Conference Call:
Guest speaker: Dr. Veerabhadran Ramanathan, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, talks about non-CO2 sources of global warming
As the clock ticks down toward the tipping point on global warming, is there a way to buy more time for efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions? An initiative launched by the U.S. State Department earlier this year aims to do just that by regulating and reducing non-CO2 sources of global warming – methane, soot and ozone. This initiative is being guided by the research of our September conference call guest, Dr. Veerabhadran Ramanathan, Director of the Center for Clouds, Chemistry, and Climate at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. He is currently working on Project Surya to replace traditional biomass cooking in developing countries with clean-burning cook stoves that can slash emissions, improve indoor air quality and curb climate pollutants at the same time. Dr. Ramanathan also co-chaired the publication of Fate of Mountain Glaciers in the Anthropocene, a report from the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.
August 2012 call: Report from the CCL conference in Washington
The August national call is all about the conference in Washington.

June 2012 Guest Speaker: Former Congressman Bob Inglis
Former Congressman Bob Inglis, a Republican from South Carolina, served six terms in the U.S. House of Representatives before leaving office in 2011. During his tenure, he introduced the Raise Wages, Cut Carbon Act of 2009, a bill to tax carbon and return the revenue through cuts in payroll taxes. Since leaving Congress, he continues to be a staunch advocate for a national policy to price carbon. Early in his career, Inglis was a climate change skeptic. His views began to shift after a conversation with his son, who had recently turned 18. “My son said to me, ‘Dad, I’ll vote for you, but you got to clean up your act on the environment.’ His sisters and mother agreed and so, I mean, that’s a pretty important constituency to please.”
May Guest Speaker: Major Gen. Anthony L. Jackson, USMC, retired
Major General Jackson recently retired from the United States Marine Corps after 36 years of service. Prior to his retirement, Major General Jackson served as the Commanding General, Marine Corps Installations West.

His study says it can be done with today's technology at costs roughly comparable to conventional energy. But converting will be a massive undertaking on the scale of the moon landings. What is needed most is the societal and political will to make it happen.
