This is the July 21, 2021 hearing on "Combating Climate Change in East Asia and the Pacific," held before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on East Asia, the Pacific, and International Cybersecurity Policy of the Committee on Foreign Relations. From the opening statement of Edward J. Markey: "The United States has a moral imperative to lead in the fight against climate change. We have got to go big to meet the scope and the scale of this moment because the world needs our leadership, and we need to be doing our fair share. After all, around 40 percent of all the excess CO2 in the atmosphere right now is red, white, and blue. [...] In the United States, we need to resume our leadership role against climate change. We must remain committed to supporting and assisting partners and allies in adapting to urgent climate threats and avoiding future emissions. This is the central tenet of the Green New Deal."
