2004 AAAS Climate Change Dialogue

"Bridging the Climate Science Policy Gap: A U.K.-U.S. Dialogue" - February 13, 2004

In February 2004, thousands of scientists, policy makers, and media representatives gathered in Seattle, Washington for the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). The scientific and policy dimensions of climate change impacts and response were explored in a featured dialogue on climate change science and policies in the United States and the United Kingdom. Featured participants in the dialogue were:

  • Sir David King - Chief Scientific Advisor to the government of the United Kingdom
  • Professor Edward L. Miles - Professor of Marine Affairs at the University of Washington and Director of the Climate Impacts Group
  • David A. Warrilow - head of Science Policy, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, United Kingdom
