Public Statements

Issue Position: Environment - Global Warming & Climate Change

Issue Position

By:
Location: Unknown

I believe the United States, as the world's leader in science and technology, has a responsibility to develop solutions that protect our planet's resources without adversely affecting economic and social progress.

As Chairman of the Science and Technology Subcommittee on Investigations and Oversight, I have had the opportunity to hold hearings relating to climate change. I plan to continue using my subcommittee as a bully pulpit for promoting sensible policies that can reduce the threat global warming poses to our planet.

I believe that we need to focus more of our resources towards climate research and am a cosponsor of the Climate Stewardship Act. This legislation would call for the reduction of emissions for six greenhouse gases from anticipated levels beginning in 2010. It would require that greenhouse gas emissions from covered entities be limited to year 2000 levels.
