New report: Highest greenhouse gas levels in 650,000 years and rapidly rising ocean levels. But what do scientists know? Like the old bumper sticker said, "Speed on, brother, hell ain't half full!"

UPDATE: As luck would have it, the Arkansas Climate Change Project is bringing together officials to talk about the weather in Little Rock tomorrow.

NEWS RELEASE

LITTLE ROCK, AR – The Arkansas Climate Change Project (ACCP) will be hosting a press conference on the effects of global warming issues have on the state and local economy. Speakers include Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola, Carol Andress of the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) and Dr. Ron Meyers, Assistant Professor of Environmental Policy at the University of Arkansas’s Clinton School of Public Service.

The ACCP looks to highlight the benefit and what it means for Arkansas’ economy to be ‘going green’. Releasing a recent study conducted by EDF that looks at the impacts a Cap and Trade policy for greenhouse gas emissions will have on the economy. Highlighted is the potential growth for Arkansas’ job market, especially in the supply chains where being the countries second largest domestic producer of steel will play a large factor.

“We have already witnessed the benefit of a green economy with companies such as LM Glasfiber, which brings over 1,000 new jobs to Little Rock with the opening of their new facility,” said Mayor Stodola.

Ms. Andress serves as EDF’s manager for legislative outreach to the U.S. House of Representatives. She is an expert in the field of global warming and the upcoming debate on Cap and Trade legislation.

In addition to being an expert in the field of environmental policy, Dr. Meyers works in the field of environmental, sustainability and community redevelopment.
