This is the September 26, 2019 hearing titled "Understanding, Forecasting, and Communicating Extreme Weather in a Changing Climate," held before the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. From the opening statement of Eddie Bernice Johnson: "Good morning, and welcome to our day's hearing on extreme weather. This is a topic that I think is universally relevant, as many of my colleagues and our constituents have dealt with extreme weather events recently. In fact, NOAA's (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's) National Centers for Environmental Information found that in 2018 alone the U.S. experienced 14 climate weather and disasters with losses for each topping $1 billion. These events included drought, severe storms, wildfires, tropical cyclones, and winter storms, and they impacted nearly every State in the continental U.S." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: J. Marshall Shepherd, James Done, Adam Sobel, Berrien Moore, and Ann Bostrom.
