NASA officials will join Department of Commerce Secretary Don
Evans and Department of Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham to unveil
the Administration’s strategic plan on long-term global climate
variability and change at a press conference tomorrow.

The Climate Change Science Program (CCSP), a joint federal program
of the President’s Committee on Climate Change Science and
Technology Integration, developed the new plan. The CCSP is a
cooperative effort among 13 government agencies. CCSP is charged
with overseeing the Congressionally-mandated U.S. Global Climate
Research Program and the Climate Change Research Initiative.

Evans also is expected to announce an additional initiative aimed at
improving mankind’s understanding of global climate change and the
ability for all nations to participate in the dialogue.

The press conference is Thursday at 10 a.m. at the Department of
Commerce in Washington.
