Assessment of Approaches to Updating the Social Cost of Carbon: Phase 1 Report on a Near-Term Update

SCC Interim BLThis report from the Board on Environmental Change and Society advises that there would not be sufficient benefit to updating estimates of the social cost of carbon (SCC) within a year based only on the revision of a specific parameter in the existing framework used by the government’s interagency group to measure the SCC. The committee considered whether a near-term change is warranted on the basis of updating the probability distribution for equilibrium climate sensitivity (ECS). Because ECS is only one input to the framework used to estimate the SCC, updating the ECS alone may not significantly improve the estimates. The report also recommends ways to change the IWG's technical support documents to enhance the qualitative characterization of uncertainties associated with the SCC estimates, which would increase the transparency of the estimates when used in regulatory impact analyses.

Science Teachers' Learning: Enhancing Opportunities, Creating Supportive Contexts

Science Teachers Learning_LThis report provides guidance for schools and districts on how best to support teachers’ learning and how to implement successful programs for professional development. The report makes actionable recommendations for science teachers’ learning that take a broad view of what is known about science education, how and when teachers learn, and education policies that directly and indirectly shape what teachers are able to learn and teach.

Barriers and Opportunities for 2-Year and 4-Year STEM Degrees

B&OLThis report reviews research on the roles that people, processes, and institutions play in 2-and 4-year STEM degree production. This study pays special attention to the factors that influence students’ decisions to enter, stay in, or leave STEM majors—quality of instruction, grading policies, course sequences, undergraduate learning environments, student supports, co-curricular activities, students’ general academic preparedness and competence in science, family background, and governmental and institutional policies that affect STEM educational pathways.
