On October 28th, Global Climate Program Senior Fellow Taryn Fransen testified in a hearing before the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on the Climate Crisis. The hearing, titled “International Climate Challenges and Opportunities,” explored the challenges and opportunities for international climate action as world leaders prepare to gather in Glasgow, Scotland, for the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference. Taryn’s testimony focused on the state of global climate action: Where greenhouse gas emissions are today, where they are headed under our current policies and pledges under the Paris Agreement, and what more is needed to ensure we deliver on our pledges and keep ramping up action to limit warming to 1.5°C (2.7°F).
