From the opening statement of Debra A. Haaland: "We begin that leadership today as we confront the most pressing issue facing our Nation, which is climate change. We will hear testimony from leading scientists about the disproportionate impact climate change is already having on our public lands. [...] We rely on the natural world to provide us with many of the things we depend on each day, from clean water and clean air to flood control and coastal protection. At a time when these natural services are under threat from global climate change, Americans will require strong leadership to ensure that we are ready to adapt to these changes and to meet these challenges."
