 +The agencies will report to a virtual meeting of Senator Dembrow'​s committee as noted here:

-We really need to use best available science to determine what our objectives are, so we will provide some UN science context including UN IPCC SR15 context from the Special Report on 1.5 Deg C that re-evaluated whether extra effort should be put in to achieve this tighter target from the Paris Accord talks. ​The answer is that the many scientists involved in this evaluation (Released October 8, 2018 and later additions) agreed that it was extremely important that we target that objective. ​  +Since **best available science** is necessary ​to determine what our objectives are, we will provide some UN science context including UN IPCC SR15 context from the Special Report on 1.5 Deg C that re-evaluated whether extra effort should be put in to achieve this tighter target from the Paris Accord talks. ​Many scientists involved in this evaluation (Released October 8, 2018 and later additions) agreed that it was extremely important that we target that objective. ​
