Dr. William Moomaw

After addressing stratospheric ozone depletion as a staff scientist for the U.S. Senate, Dr. Moomaw began working on climate change in 1988 as the first director of the climate program at World Resources Institute in Washington DC. He has been a lead author of five Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Reports. The IPCC shared the Nobel Peace Prize for its climate work in 2007. He is currently identifying natural climate solutions that increase accumulation of carbon in forests, wetlands and soils to more rapidly meet climate goals. Dr. Moomaw is a co-author of a recent paper declaring a Climate Emergency that has been endorsed by over 13,000 scientists.
