This is the October 20, 2015 hearing on the "2015 Paris International Climate Negotiations: Examining the Economic and Environmental Impacts," held before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Multilateral International Development, Multilateral Institutions, and International Economic, Energy, and Environmental Policy of the Committee on Foreign Relations. From the Opening Statement of Tom Udall: "We face an urgent task in Paris to bring the international community together, to chart a more sustainable future for our children and our grandchildren. NASA estimates that 2015 is 93 percent likely to be the warmest year on record, and the current record holder last year, 2014. Global warming is one of our greatest challenges. It requires a global effort through a comprehensive international agreement. That is the only way we can truly tackle this problem. It is an environmental challenge. It is an energy challenge. It is a public health challenge. And it is a national security challenge." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of Todd Stern.
