Climate Change Authority Steven J. Smith Quoted in The New York Times

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory scientist Dr. Steven J. Smith was quoted in The New York Times online edition article about a recent International Energy Agency report. The preliminary report indicates that efforts to increase energy efficiency and reduce carbon dioxide emissions may be paying off.

However, several experts, including Smith, indicate caution in interpreting short-term numbers. "We need to be cautious about the meaning of data from any one year," said Smith. "What is important is the long-term trend. We need to understand if the fundamental forces that drive energy and emissions have changed."

Smith, a recognized international expert in global emissions and climate mitigation, works at PNNL's Joint Global Change Research Institute, a partnership with the University of Maryland, located in College Park.
