ABSTRACT

Serial No. 112-09: Climate Change: Examining the Processes Used to Create Science and Policy, Hearing Before the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, House of Representatives, One Hundred Twelfth Congress, First Session, Thursday, March 31, 2011   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the hearing charter: "On Thursday, March 31, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology will hold a hearing to examine processes used to generate key climate change science and information used to inform policy development and decision-making. […] All aspects of modern life operate within a known range of climate conditions. That range of variability requires that all sectors, from agriculture to transportation, have a measure of resiliency built into them. Our ability to adapt to changing climate conditions is predicated on our ability to better account for risk and prepare proportionate responses to those risks. Advancements in climate science may reduce uncertainty and provide a better idea about the risks we face, thus allowing for more informed decisions to be made that impact the quality of our lives." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Ralph M. Hall, Eddie Bernice Johnson, J. Scott Armstrong, Richard Muller, John Christy, Peter Glaser, Kerry Emanuel, W. David Montgomery, and Dana Rohrabacher.
