This is the February 25, 2021 hearing on "Climate Change and the U.S. Agriculture and Forestry Sectors," held before the House Committee on Agriculture. From the Opening Statement of David Scott: "This is perhaps the single-most important hearing that we must have right now, because agriculture is our single-most important industry overall, but especially right now, because nobody: our farmers, our agriculture industry, they more than any other entity or industry suffer more and benefit more from climate and weather. And I say it is our most important industry because of this: agriculture is the food we eat, it is the water we drink, it is the clothes we wear, and it is our shelter. Now, folks, we can do without a lot of things, but we definitely can't do without food, water, clothing, the necessities. And we have lost too many of our farms because we moved too late to get the right information in about these weather patterns. And so, I am so grateful for our Committee, our staff, that has assembled a wonderful panel. I am so thrilled to be able to approach this issue with my partner and my friend, Ranking Member Thompson. This is critical." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Jim Cantore, Pamela N. Knox, Zippy Duvall, Gabe Brown, and Michael D. Shellenberger.
