CSDE Affiliate Dr. Jeremy Hess (Global Health, Emergency Medicine, Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences, Director of the Center for Health and the Global Environment, or CHanGE) was one of three UW experts who contributed to the recent Fifth National Climate Assessment, serving as an author on the air quality chapter. In the previous third assessment, Dr. Hess was the lead author on the human health chapter. Other UW experts who contributed to the fifth assessment included Kristie Ebi (Global Health, Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences, and CHanGE) and Crystal Raymond (Climate Impacts Group). The fifth assessment includes an overview of climate trends, impacts, and efforts to mitigate and adapt to climate change across the U.S, led by the U.S. Global Change Research Program and required by the U.S. Congress roughly every four years.
