Denver Post columnist Diane Carman has resigned to take a job on the Presidential Climate Action Project at UC-D.Here's the webpage for the Presidential Climate Action Project .
To help the President launch effective Federal leadership on these issues, the University of Colorado and several partner organizations are engaging the nation's science, policy, business and civic leaders to produce a Presidential Climate Action Plan (PCAP).The plan will contain a broad menu of policy and program recommendations for the President, rather than advocating a particular policy. It will be announced early in 2008. During 2007-2008, the project will operate a web site that offers resource documents and background information on climate policy to assist the Presidential candidates in forming their climate-action commitments.The Project has four components:
The Presidential Climate Action Plan will consist of four parts: 1) goals and milestones for reducing U.S. greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions; 2) actions the President can take under his/her executive authority during the first 100 days in office; 3) actions for the Administration's first 1,000 days in office; and 4) initiatives the President can include in his/her first budget and legislative package to Congress.Good luck to Diane in her new position and career. I'll miss reading her.
