As President Biden began his term, the New York Times commented that the President had entered his office with the "largest team ever assembled inside the White House to tackle global warming." It was a bold move after several years of disruptions and disinvestment throughout multiple federal agencies.
Included on this new team in the Office of Domestic Climate Policy is Cleveland's own Sonia Aggarwal. Sonia was appointed by President Biden in January 2021 to serve on his climate team as the Senior Advisor for Climate Policy and Innovation at the White House. Prior to this, she was the Co-Founder and Vice President at Energy Innovation, a San Francisco-based nonpartisan energy and environmental policy firm. While she was there, she led America’s Power Plan, bringing together 200 electricity policy experts and developed the Energy Policy Simulator that would analyze environmental, economic, and public health impacts of climate and energy policies.
Join us in-person at the City Club as we hear the latest from Sonia Aggarwal on strategies and policies to combat climate change.
