Press release today from the House Science Committee’s Republicans:
Today, in the first congressional hearing with authors of the Working Group II section of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) fourth assessment report, Climate Change Impacts, Adaptation, and Vulnerability, the Science and Technology Committee was told that many different factors will determine the impacts of climate change and adaptation will play a significant role in reducing negative impacts.
“One issue that most of us agree on is that our country will experience impacts from climate change and we need to be ready to adapt to them,” Ranking Member Ralph Hall (R-TX) said. “I have faith in American innovation in finding solutions to help us adapt to theses changes. In the long run, the key to addressing climate change will be clean, affordable, and reliable energy technologies.”
