This is the July 14, 2020 oversight hearing "Energy Infrastructure and Environmental Justice: Lessons for a Sustainable Future," held before the House Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources of the Committee on Natural Resources. From the opening statement of Alan S. Lowenthal: "The Subcommittee is meeting today to hear testimony on energy infrastructure and its relationship to environmental justice and lessons that we have learned for building a more sustainable, clean energy future. [...] Clean energy on public lands should be leveraged to ensure a just and equitable transition away from fossil fuels, especially for minority and tribal communities that have been the most impacted by pollution. We need to write a new playbook, one that rights historical wrongs, addresses the existential threat of climate change, and builds a more just and equitable future." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Sarah Obed, Jacqueline Patterson, Julia Prochnik, and Ella Rose.
