Kicking Off the Week with Two Key Climate Hearings
It’s a busy day for climate action in the DC area! On Capitol Hill, the House Energy and Commerce Committee will begin debating and amending the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 (ACES), also known as Waxman-Markey. In today’s New York Times, columnist Paul Krugman writes in support of the bill.
And just across the Potomac from Capitol Hill in Arlington’s Crystal City, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is holding hearings to take public comment on its proposal to list greenhouse gases as a threat under the Clean Air Act.
I’m heading to the EPA hearing shortly. I’ll keep you updated!
