"The White House science office announced today that Allison Crimmins will lead the next mammoth report on climate change.
The fifth National Climate Assessment is expected to be released in 2023 and stands to be more expansive than past editions, the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) said in a statement today.
Crimmins has been a scientist at EPA’s air office, where she developed policy and helped communicate about climate change impacts to federal regulators and policymakers.
“Real and urgently needed progress on climate change requires collective action,” she said in a statement. “That’s why I’m committed to ensuring that NCA5 represents and benefits all Americans.”"
