CEI CONFERENCE IN NOVEMBER

Climate Change and New York State: Gaining the Competitive Edge, a conference sponsored by the Center for Environmental Information and cosponsored by 40 government, business, utility, environmental, planning, academic and trade associations, agencies, companies and institutions, will be held Nov. 19-20, 1998, at the Omni Hotel in Albany, N.Y. Governor George Pataki has been invited to give the keynote address.

The goals for the conference are to create awareness of the environmental and economic impacts of climate change on New York State, to assess options for mitigation and adaptation to a changing climate, to describe existing and emerging strategies for addressing climate change in New York State, and to establish an ongoing mechanism for communicating about climate change and New York State.

Leading economists, researchers, and policy analysts will present up-to-date information on the state of the science and on economic and policy impacts associated with the climate change issue. The conference will also include sessions on the environmental impacts of a changing climate on New York State resources, costs and benefits to New York of stabilizing atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases, and New York State options for mitigation and adaptation to climate change.
