Featuring: David Allaway, Oregon Department of Environmental Quality Dr. Phillip Mote, Oregon State University, co-author of National Climate Assessment Northwest section

The impacts of climate change are already being felt in the Western U.S., and even bigger impacts are anticipated in the coming years.

This year’s West Coast Climate Forum webinar series begins with an overview of the National Climate Assessment from Oregon State University's Phillip Mote, co-author of the Northwest section of the report. He will highlight how climate change is already affecting the United States—and how it will impact us in the future.

David Allaway from Oregon DEQ will then present an introduction to the central role that materials play in the emissions that are causing climate change, and the work of the West Coast Climate Forum and its partners to reduce these emissions.
