OAK RIDGE, Tenn., Feb. 18, 2014 -- The National Council for Science and the Environment (NCSE) has presented its Lifetime Achievement Award to Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Jack D. Fellows for his part in co-founding the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP).

The USGCRP consolidates global change research across 13 federal departments and agencies to advance research on climate change in the United States and use that knowledge to inform policy and the public. The program cooperates with organizations such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
The awards ceremony took place in Washington, D.C., at NCSE's 14th National Conference and Global Forum on Science, Policy, and the Environment.
UT-Battelle manages ORNL for the Department of Energy’s Office of Science. DOE’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of the time.
