PRESS ADVISORY: Energy experts in Pittsburgh to discuss U.S. climate policies, global priorities at G-20

I’m going to be on a panel at the G20 meeting in Pittsburgh Friday afternoon. Details below:

Energy experts from the Center for American Progress and the Global Climate Network will meet blocks away from this week’s G-20 meetings and discuss the current energy profile of U.S. climate legislation. They will also preview two new reports on U.S.-China cooperation on carbon capture and sequestration and talk about pathways toward an integrated clean energy economy that promotes positive trade relationships instead of using trade only as a threat to ensure emissions reductions. Who:Joe Romm, Senior Fellow, Center for American Progress and Editor, ClimateProgress.org
