Related: Climate Change

From 2006 to 2008, Meridian staff facilitated several meetings of the Presidential Climate Action Project (PCAP), which brought together a number of individuals representing environmental organizations, foundations, academia, and businesses to develop recommendations for the new Obama Administration regarding climate change policy. Specifically, the group evaluated the authorities available to the President to demonstrate US leadership on climate and energy security, with or without additional action by Congress. The group published a report for the President in 2008 and another in 2010, both available on their website. The chair of PCAP is former US Senator Gary Hart.
