Webinar Invitation
Sizing up Sandy

Dear Carmen,

After the largest Atlantic hurricane on record affected U.S. states from southern Florida to northern Maine and as far west as Wisconsin, analysts from the Union of Concerned Scientists are looking at the implications of the storm in our Hurricane Sandy: Confronting the Realities of Climate Change blog series.

In this series, our analysts are bringing their varied expertise to bear on a fascinating range of questions—from the relationship between the storm and climate change, to the economic costs and health impacts, to how we can prepare ourselves and our infrastructure to be more resilient. Now we invite you to hear more from these and other UCS experts and to ask your own questions.

Webinar: Sizing up Sandy
Date: Tuesday, November 27
Time: 7:00 p.m. (EST)

The webinar will be moderated by UCS climate scientist Brenda Ekwurzel and will feature:

CBO


Estimated Impact of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act on Employment and Economic Output from July 2012 Through September 2012

As required by law, CBO prepares regular reports on its estimate of the number of jobs created by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), which was enacted in response to significant weakness in the economy.

In total, CBO estimates that ARRA will increase budget deficits by about $833 billion over the 2009–2019 period. By CBO’s estimate, close to half of that impact occurred in fiscal year 2010, and more than 90 percent of ARRA’s budgetary impact was realized by the end of September 2012.
