Dear Colleagues,

As we begin a new year, I wanted to send you a reminder about the IT Project Management Policy for UC Berkeley which took effect on Jan. 1, 2017. If you have not recently reviewed the policy, please take some time to read it so you understand the project conditions that invoke the policy and what requirements you need to meet in order to adhere to the policy.

How might one measure the social cost of carbon? This is the question that brought more than 20 climate scientists, economists, data analysts, engineers, and researchers together at the Climate Impact Lab. With members from UC Berkeley, the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago, the Rhodium Group, and Rutgers University, the Lab formed out of an assessment that it is critically necessary to understand how climate change affects the United States in social and economic terms.

Reminder: We hope to see you at the Open Seminar tomorrow, Thursday, Feb. 1, in Sibley Auditorium at 10:30 a.m. with pizza to follow!
