AASHTO/FHWA/FTA WEBINARS ON CLIMATE CHANGE

AASHTO, FHWA and FTA are sponsoring a series of six webinars on climate change, February – June 2010. The webinars are designed for state DOTs — CEOs, Chief Engineers, planning staff, communications staff, environmental staff, engineering staff, government affairs staff, and others. Climate change is going to be a major issue for state DOTs, so we hope to have a large and diverse participation.

The topics, dates, and times for the first three webinars are:

Climate Change 101 — An overview of climate change science, linkages to energy security, greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction strategies for surface transportation, and risk-based adaptation to climate change. Intro by Paula Hammond, Chair of AASHTO Climate Change Steering Committee and Secretary of Washington DOT. Lead presenter: Cindy Burbank of Parsons Brinckerhoff.

Date and time: Wednesday, February 24, 2:00-3:30 Eastern.
