Building US Resilience to Global Warming Impacts - Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming - 2009-10-22 - The consequences of global warming in the United States will be significant even in the case of deep reductions in future heat-trapping emissions. The current and anticipated impacts -- including sea level rise, more frequent heat waves, regional drought and flooding, and more intense tropical storms -- pose a serious threat to our health, environment, economic well-being, and national security. While Congress works to curb carbon pollution to avoid the worst effects of global warming, America must look at adaptation measures that will protect communities from harm caused by global warming that is already set to occur. On Thursday October 22, 2009 at 9:30 am, the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming held a hearing on adaptation entitled, "Building US Resilience to Global Warming Impacts" in room 2175 Rayburn House Office Building. WITNESSES: John Stephenson, Natural Resources and Environment, Government Accountability Office; Eric Schwaab, Deputy Secretary of the Maryland Department of Natural Resources; Stephen Seidel, VP for Policy Analysis and Gen. Counsel, Pew Center on Global Climate Change; Kenneth Green, Resident Scholar, American Enterprise Institute. Video provided by the US House of Representatives.
