From the opening statement of Emanuel Cleaver: "Today, we will examine the effects of climate change on America's housing infrastructure, and within the jurisdiction of this subcommittee, the role of the Federal Government in mitigating, responding to, and recovering from weather events. Climate change is the biggest existential crisis of our time. Scientific data demonstrates that the average global temperature is trending upward, and that more record-setting or near-record-temperatures are likely on the horizon."
