This is the December 1, 2015 hearing "Pitfalls of Unilateral Negotiations at the Paris Climate Change Conference," held before the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. From the opening statement of Lamar Smith: " The Obama administration's new electricity regulations will increase the control of the federal government over the lives of Americans and will burden American families. President Obama intends to submit these costly new requirements as the cornerstone of his proposal at the Paris U.N. climate conference. These severe measures will adversely affect our economy and have no significant impact on climate change. The president has pledged that the United States will cut its greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 28 percent over the next decade and by 80 percent or more by 2050. The pledge was made in preparation for the U.N. meeting now underway in Paris, which seeks to produce an international agreement that would impose legally binding requirements on the United States for decades to come." Statements, letters, and other materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Oren Cass, Andrew Grossman, Andrew Steer, and Bjørn Lomborg.
