In our special “Third Pod from the Sun” episode, featuring AGU Vice President of Meetings Lauren Parr and AGU Vice President of Science Policy and Government Relations Lexi Shultz, we talk about what is AGU, as an organization, doing to serve as an ally when it comes to our meetings and public policy.
This Friday, 30 April, marks U.S. President Biden’s 100th day in office. The new administration has shown a strong commitment to science, including elevating the Office of Science and Technology Policy to a cabinet-level position, rejoining the Paris Agreement, committing to reducing U.S. emissions by about 50% below 2005 levels by 2030, as well as laying out how the administration will address the world’s climate crisis.
On behalf of the AGU Board, we are excited to announce Peter Schlosser, John Podesta and Tong Zhu as our new board members. They will be instrumental in helping to execute the strategic plan for a thriving, sustainable and equitable future supported by scientific discovery, innovation and action.
We encourage everyone in our AGU community to join us in commemorating Earth Day and think about how we can work together to combat climate change and protect our environment.
