As we saw with Hurricane Sandy, the impacts of climate change are here and now. Once Election 2012 is behind us, our leaders in the White House and Congress will need to address pressing questions about how to provide safe, affordable, reliable energy while also protecting the global climate.

Those questions include:

How is the President-elect likely to address climate change in the wake of Sandy?
How will the EPA regulate greenhouse gas emissions from existing and new power plants?
Will lawmakers consider a price on carbon as they try to address the “fiscal cliff?”
C2ES experts are available this week to put the election results in context and discuss what to expect from the next administration and Congress in preparing for and limiting the impacts of climate change and encouraging progress toward a low-carbon economy.
