This is the February 27, 2019 hearing on "Sea Change: Impacts of Climate Change on Our Oceans and Coasts," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Environment of the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. From the opening statement of Lizzie Fletcher: "Building on the momentum of our first full Committee hearing on the State of Climate Science, today we'll be discussing how climate change is impacting our oceans and coasts. This is an important topic, and I want to convey a few things as we begin. First, every American should care about changes to the oceans, even those who do not live along the coasts. Second, we are already seeing visible changes and paying a very real price. Climate change impacts are here, happening now, not far-off events for future generations to address. And those impacts can be seen in our oceans and coasts." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Sarah Cooley, Radley Horton, Thomas K. Frazer, and Margaret A. Pilaro.
