The State of Our Climate: A Google+ Hangout with Secretary Moniz and Administrator McCarthy
11:19 AM EDT
Climate change is not a distant threat – it's affecting us right now. That's why earlier this month, as part of President Obama's plan to act on climate change, the Administration released the third National Climate Assessment, which breaks down the current and projected impacts of climate change on every region of the country and key sectors of our economy.
On Monday, May 19 at 1:00 p.m. ET, join the website Grist.org, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy, and the White House for a Google+ Hangout. We'll be chatting about climate change and the steps we're taking to reduce carbon pollution, prepare for the impacts of climate change, and build a clean energy economy – including an upcoming rule that would cut carbon pollution from existing power plants.
Have questions? Secretary Moniz and Administrator McCarthy will answer them during the event. Ask using the hashtag #WHClimateChat on Twitter, Google+, and Facebook.
Watch the Hangout live at 1:00 p.m. ET on Monday, May 19 on the White House Google+ page.
