  • Center for Science and Technology Policy Research :: CIRES
    by public and private decision makers for usable scientific information Our work is often aimed at understanding the choices that people and institutions make in pursuing goals under uncertainty be it an uncertain future climate uncertain outcomes of investments in science and technology or the uncertain outcomes of a particular environmental policy One of our goals is enlarging the range of choice considered by policy makers by analyzing options in areas such as energy technology carbon management science investments and public lands and ecosystems management By linking integrative science with the needs of decision makers science and technology policy research can serve a valuable role in helping the research community better focus its efforts on issues of importance to society and decision makers can more effectively incorporate scientific and technological advances into their decision processes Center Activities Examples of Center Activities please see our annual report for most recent activities Research The Center s NSF funded Science Policy Assessment and Research on Climate project has been examining the challenge of producing science that meets the changing needs of decision makers The Western Water Assessment funded project A Drought Impact and Vulnerability Indicator Suite has canvassed existing indicators and determined the appropriate time scales and geographical frameworks for measuring drought impacts and vulnerability in the Interior West Outreach The Climate Fix What Scientists and Politicians Won t tell You About Global Warming by Roger Pielke Jr seeks to reframe the debate over climate policy in the context of the disappointing results of the 2009 Copenhagen climate conference and the lost trust of the public in the climate science community To be released in 2010 The Center sponsored a year long lecture series Policy Politics and Science in the White House Conversations with Presidential Science Advisors that brought science advisors to Presidents

  • Energy and Environment Initiative :: CIRES
    and through expansion of renewable energy sources including wind solar biomass hydroelectric tidal and geothermal energy All these future energy options renewable or fossil fuel based impact the environment For example reductions in greenhouse gas emissions have been achieved by the increased penetration of renewables and potentially natural gas into the US electricity market Energy development can also have negative impacts such as the short and long term effects of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico on air and food resources Yet the full suite of implications for air water land and ecosystem resources associated with different energy options have not been comprehensively assessed and are not entirely understood Environmental scientists have an important role to play in the assessment of future energy options by providing the information necessary to characterize the environmental effects of both current and emerging energy sources A close collaboration between energy researchers and environmental scientists warrants that energy sources are not only technologically feasible and economically viable and that the impacts to air water and land resources are fully understood Goals This CIRES Initiative engages researchers in the study of the environmental effects of present and future energy solutions CIRES is uniquely positioned
