This is the July 28, 2020 hearing on "Solving the Climate Crisis: Building a Vibrant and Just Clean Energy Environment," held before the U.S. House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis. From the opening statement of Kathy Castor: "America is reeling from a number of interrelated and severe crises that I believe can be solved through transformational action and leadership. [...] Congress must rise to the occasion. We must tackle the climate crisis while heeding the calls for racial justice, protecting the health of our families, and helping our neighbors get back to work. And we can rebuild our economy in a resilient way that reduces greenhouse gas pollution and protects the air that we breathe. We have a moral obligation to solve the climate crisis and build back better for decades to come. [...] Today, we will discuss how to build a vibrant clean energy economy, one that centers environmental justice at its core. We will hear about ways to grow our manufacturing base and create well-paying jobs by modernizing our grid. And we will discuss initiatives to revive our economy while reducing pollution and creating more resilient communities." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Ana Baptista, Jason Walsh, Michael Shellenberger, and Beth Soholt.
