The Federal Policy Landscape for Climate Mitigation & Adaptation

August 23, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

*Climate Change 360 – Virtual Lecture Series*

Register for any/all of the talks on at: This event is organized by Lutherans Restoring Creation – Gulf Coast, in partnership with the Interfaith Environmental Network of Houston and Texas Impact/Texas Interfaith Power & Light. Contact Lisa Brenskelle at for more information.

Join Dr. Gavin Dillingham to learn about policies to address climate change. Federal policy makers are taking a two-pronged approach to climate change. The first is decarbonization and reducing greenhouse gases. The second is focused on climate risk and the steps that need to be taken to lessen the impacts of these risks. Action to decarbonize and to mitigate climate risk will come from Executive Orders and legislation. What has been accomplished to date, what is under consideration and what is still lacking will be discussed. Time for interactive discussion will be provided after his talk. Dr. Gavin Dillingham is CEO of Pythias Analytics and Director for Clean Energy Policy at the Houston Advanced Research Center (HARC). At HARC, Gavin leads multi-stakeholder efforts focusing on policy and programs to improve the climate resilience of power infrastructure and built environment and to help usher in the energy transition via a variety of clean energy initiatives. Pythias Analytics brings together climate and decision science to provide climate analytics, scenario planning and decision optimization.
