Today, The White House released the Fifth National Climate Assessment — the most up-to-date and comprehensive U.S. report to evaluate climate change risks, impacts, and responses.
@ClarkGeography Professor Abby Frazier (pictured above) is lead author of the report’s chapter on Hawaiʻi and the U.S.-Affiliated Pacific Islands. Frazier, a seasoned climatologist, told the @CivilBeat that the chapter “will better illustrate why the fires have become such a big problem in the Pacific, where they’ve increased fourfold in the region in recent decades.”
This morning, President Joe Biden acknowledged the 700+ authors and technical contributors who worked on the report. Frazier will join other lead authors at the White House for a release event this afternoon from 3-5 p.m., which will be livestreamed on the White House’s YouTube channel.
