President Emerita, Natural Resources Defense Council; board member, World Resources Institute, United States
"After decades of working to limit climate change, it is with a heavy heart that I join a Commission to consider what we do in case we fail to stay within 1.5°C. As impacts for people and planet worsen, so too will the pressure to explore novel strategies. Identifying research requirements, potential risks, and governance challenges is necessary. Continuing to focus on reaching the Paris commitments remains paramount."
