ISSE Scientists presented talks to the House Staff from the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming at NCAR. Joanie Kleypas, Linda Mearns, Kathy Miller, and Paty Romero Lankao gave presentations on the impacts of climate change and opportunities for adaptation. Kleypas discussed the effects of ocean acidification on marine ecosystems (and performed an actual chemistry experiment!), Mearns discussed regional climate change and general issues related to adaptation, Miller discussed effects on water resources and adaptations, and Romero Lankao discussed urban settlements.
"Because the pathway to sustainability cannot be charted in advance, it will have to be navigated through trial and error and conscious experimentation. The urgent need is to design strategies and institutions that can better integrate incomplete knowledge with experimental action into programs of adaptive management and social learning."
