The U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Environment of the Committee on Science, Space & Technology is holding a Hearing this Wed on “Policy Relevant Climate Issues in Context.” Witnesses:
- Bjorn Lomborg
- Judith Curry
- William Chameides
Now you know what has been keeping me so busy lately. This promises to be an interesting hearing. It is particularly interesting for me personally, since I have a connection with both Lomborg and Chameides.
Bill Chameides preceded me as Chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Tech; he is currently Dean of the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University. While I have never met Bjorn Lomborg, several years ago we wrote dueling op-eds for the Washington Post.
The Hearing will be webcast live, no idea if it will be archived. I will post my testimony on Wed once the hearing starts, along with the other links.
I just submitted my written testimony, I am pretty pleased with how it turned out, although there is such a short amount of time you have to prepare that it is difficult to really polish and tighten it. Working on my oral comments now.
Should be interesting.
p.s. I am making every effort to be non-normative :)
